But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.
Obedience is a vital element in our Christian walk. We cannot call ourselves sons and daughters of God when we simply cannot obey His commandments. We cannot call ourselves children when we cannot sit and listen. A wise man knows the importance of sitting at the feet of the cross and heeding every word and command of the Father.
It is the foolish man that does not obey the Lord. The one who hears the Lord say take a left but without budging they foolishly take a right. Disregarding What they have been told. God has given us a manual one which we are to live a life by. It contains the answer to every question we will ever have in this life. Take that manual and obey every word. If we don’t obey we will surely be like a house built on sand easily broken and destroyed. So, therefore, let us listen to all He has to say and obey Him, For obedience truly is better than sacrifice
As we build let us strive to build it on a solid foundation that will last forever, even by way of obeying the Lord.
