Wise or Foolish?


The wise and the foolish

Matthew 7We are often advised about our life and the decisions we make and this chapter reminds us that what we hear we must be discerning. Some advice is pure and worthy to be heeded and other advice we should discard. We need wisdom about many things and Jesus taught as one with authority, therefore we should heed and obey His advice.  As he ended his teaching he said: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock” [Matt 7:24]

We have been gifted with the Word of the Lord and it behooves us to listen and do what He says. The challenge before us is do we want to be wise or foolish? That seems rather simple, but the proof is in our words and deeds. Is our “house” built on the “ROCK’ which is Jesus and His teaching or on the words of men?
