Build a Strong Foundation
Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. Now everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall. And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Create a solid plan, evaluate, revise, and recommit.
This is, perhaps, the most important Parable of them all.
- Once you have learned from the Parables, what will you do with the information?
- Will it be just an academic exercise, or will it be a life-changing event?
- Will you become wise, or remain foolish? *
