Parable of the Wise and Foolish Builders

Jesus and his teachings are our foundation.

Before You Listen

After you listen

Memory Verse

Anyone who comes and listens to me and obeys me is like someone who dug down deep and built a house on solid rock.”

Audio Icon   Luke 6:47-48



Jesus taught in a few different ways. He told parables about the kingdom of heaven. He asked questions. He quoted the Old Testament. He challenged some with direct preaching. Have you read one of the gospels like the Book of Mark or the Book of Luke? Take a deep dive into scripture and read one or more of the gospel books and read Jesus’ words for yourself. As you are reading, think about and apply what Jesus is saying to your life. How can you obey Jesus’ teaching today?

Read all about obeying Jesus’ teaching in 2 John 1:6, John 14:15, and John 15:14. Want to dig deeper and learn more about reading the Bible? Check out check out Kids Corner’s eBook Faith Practices for Families: Reading the Bible.
