Bible: Matthew 7:24-29

Hearing and Doing

7:24Everyone 1  who hears these words of mine and does them is like 2  a wise man 3  who built his house on rock. 7:25 The rain fell, the flood 4  came, and the winds beat against that house, but it did not collapse because it had been founded on rock. 7:26 Everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 7:27 The rain fell, the flood came, and the winds beat against that house, and it collapsed; it was utterly destroyed! 5 

7:28 When 6  Jesus finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed by his teaching, 7:29 because he taught them like one who had authority, 7  not like their experts in the law. 8
