Matthew 7:24-29

NLT 24 "Anyone who listens to my teaching and obeys me is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. NIV 24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. NLT 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won't collapse, because it is built on rock. NIV 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. NLT 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. NIV 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. NLT 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will fall with a mighty crash." NIV 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash." NLT 28 After Jesus finished speaking, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, NIV 28 When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, NLT 29 for he taught as one who had real authority -- quite unlike the teachers of religious law. NIV 29 because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
