What Jesus Taught Us

The Two Builders

There was a wise man and a foolish man.

Each man decided to build a house.

The wise man decided that he would build his house on rock.

The foolish man decided that he would build his house on sand.

Each house was so nice.

Then came a storm.

The winds howled and the rains fell.

The house built on rock did not move.

It was sturdy.

The house built on the sand fell.

It had no foundation and crumbled.

Jesus tells us," When you hear my words and follow them, you are like the wise man who built his house on the rock.  The rock is a good foundation.
Those who hear my words and choose not to follow is like the foolish man.  As soon as one storm came, the house crumbled.

That was a wonderful story, wasn't it?
Are you like the wise man?
Are you like the foolish man?
Do we always need a good foundation?
Where do we get one?
What do you think?

Write and tell me BUT ask your parents first

Let's Pray:
Thank you, Jesus for teaching us.
Thank you, Jesus for showing us the way.
Help me to always hear Your Word.
Help me to always follow Your Word.
I love you, Jesus.
Amen

Write to me, please.
