“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.”
I’ve come to realize that I like the idea of the beach more than actually going to the beach. But when I do go, one thing I like about the beach is building sandcastles with my grandkids.
Now, I’m not a great sandcastle builder, but there are other people who build insanely elaborate ones right by the ocean. They’re amazing. But to me it seems like the biggest waste of time ever because the tide eventually will rise and wash them away.
It isn’t a good idea to build something on sand. Jesus said, “But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash” (Matthew 7:26–27 NLT).
