THE HOUSES: What have I built my life on?
READ Matthew 7:26-27. What you build your life on, will be revealed when the storm comes. What do we often put our trust and hope in that is actually sand?  

THE PEOPLE: The wise man and the foolish man. 

READ Matthew 7:24-26 and Proverbs 10:25. Most people are not deliberately seeking to build a false foundation. How can we measure the effectiveness of our Bible Study time?

Practicing obedience becomes the solid foundation to weather the storms of life. 

READ Matthew 7:27 and Matthew 16:26. This life is just an introduction to eternity. How we live this brief span, not only determines our eternal life, but it builds a strong foundation for our life on earth.
