Bible - Week 6
October 10, 2021 | By Ben Foote
This weekend we look at the parable of the wise and foolish builders. Jesus said that one approach to life leads to destruction, and the other leads to a stormproof existence. How do we build our lives on a foundation that leads to a stormproof life?

- Throughout Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, He teaches on all kinds of topics. Open your bible to Matthew chapters 5-7 and read some of the paragraph headings.
A. Do any of these seem relevant to modern day life?
B. Does Jesus teach anything that applies to your life now?
- For most of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus speaks in plain language. Why do you think Jesus chose to end His Sermon on the Mount with a parable?
- Read Matthew 7:24-28. Ben pointed out the difference between the two builders: the wise hears and practices / the foolish hears and does not practice. When you have ‘heard’ or read something Jesus has said, what helps you put it into practice?
- Read Hebrews 4:12. Can you think of any decision you have made or action you have taken because of something you read in the Bible?
