2020 Day 21 – Luke 5-6 and Psalms 21

Do you remember the children’s song about the wise and foolish men each building a house?  The basis for that song comes from the mouth of our Savior.  “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:46-49)  We can also read a similar passage in Matthew 7:24-27.  In the song it is fun to sing how that foolish man’s house went ‘splat’.  In real life, it is not fun to be that foolish man who Jesus is talking about not following His word.
