Words To Build A Life On

24-29 “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock.

“But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.”

When Jesus concluded his address, the crowd burst into applause. They had never heard teaching like this. It was apparent that he was living everything he was saying—quite a contrast to their religion teachers! This was the best teaching they had ever heard.

– Matthew 7:24-29

The Message Version (MSG)


24-29 我向你說的話,不是對你生命可有可無、無關緊要的一番話;它們是生命的根基。假如你在生活中切實遵行這些話,你就像一個聰明的工匠,把房子建在堅硬的磐石上。儘管大雨冲刷、洪水氾濫、颶風吹襲——但房子都不會倒塌,因為它建基在磐石上。



— 馬太福音七章 24-29節
