Sunday Morning Services~ Wise and Foolish Builders
9:30am & 11:15am
Everyone therefore who hears a spiritual calling and does it is like a wise person, who built a house on a rock. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it didn't fall, for it was founded on the rock of Love. But everyone who hears spiritual words and doesn't do them is like a foolish person who built a house on the sand. The rain came down, the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell—and great was its fall. Matthew 7:24–27,
This week’s Bible parable of the Wise and Foolish Builders emphasizes the need to put our spiritual teachings into practice and speaks to us of two very different sorts of people whose hearts are revealed in their actions. Metaphorically, the rain, winds, and flood represent the calamities and afflictions that befall us all. But our souls do not give way if we are founded on the solid rock of Love. Yet, there are those of us whose lives are absorbed by anger and hatred and don’t know, or practice, Love. This Sunday’s Parable teaches us that souls filled with hatred cannot stand, for lives built on the ever shifting sands of perceived injustice will surely topple. The spiritual life of Divine ideas is stronger than any rock; for those of us who keep to Love, even though the waves of the whole world seem to be betting against us, when nations and princes, both our own people and strangers, and every engine is set in motion against us, we stand firmer than a rock, and disperse it all.
