Matthew 7 verses 24-27
24 Jesus said, “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rain and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
Read these words slowly, allowing the words to sink in.
Then spend a few minutes in silence thinking about what you’ve read.
Then read the passage again and note any word or phrase that attracts you. Sit in silence and repeat that word or phrase in your head.
Read the passage again and ask God to show you how this word or phrase speaks to your life and ponder. What do you need to consider or do or give up or take on as a result of what God is saying to you?
