The Parable of the Two Builders
|Jesus told a good story, or parable, in the Sermon on the Mount. A parable is a story that teaches us a lesson about life. This is the story Jesus told:|
A wise man built his house on a rock, so that it had a good foundation. A terrible rainstorm came and the winds blew, but it didn't hurt his house.
A foolish man built his house on the sand. When the rains and wind came, the house fell apart because the sand that served as its foundation washed away.
If you build your life on a strong foundation, you will be able to handle whatever happens. If you don't have a good foundation of beliefs and morals, when difficult times come, you will probably find yourself, like the foolish man, with nothing left.
Build a good foundation! Listen to your parents and your teachers, and keep Jesus in your heart. Your faith will see you through!
