#day9  Complete! 🕯️Favorite Devotional Part:🕯️ . In a way, reading some of the difficult parts of the Bible is like trying to solve a #crosswordpuzzle. Rather than getting bogged down in a tricky section, you can use the #passages you do understand to help you resolve some of the more difficult ones. The most important feature of any house is its #foundations. These houses differed little in appearance. But only one had ‘its foundation on the rock’ (v.25). Similarly, two lives can look alike, but the difference in the foundations is evident when, inevitably, the storms of life come. You will face challenges in this world. They will come in many forms: misunderstandings, disappointments, unfulfilled longings, doubts, trials, temptations, setbacks and satanic attacks. Success, too, can be a test. There is also pressure, suffering, sickness, bereavement, sorrow, trauma, tragedy, persecution and failure. Jesus tells us that the key difference is that the wise man not only hears the words of Jesus, but he also ‘puts them into practice’ (v.24). The foolish man, on the other hand, although he hears Jesus’ words ‘does not put them into practice’ (v.26). 🗝️Favorite Passage(s)🗝️: Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a #wiseman, which built his #houseuponarock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was #foundeduponarock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a #foolishman, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
