26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Matthew 7: 26-27 KJV
How many of us like a foolish man
Who listens to the Word and nods his head,
But keeps instead his own distorted plan
And builds his house without foundation bed.
Just knowing Christ's commands is not enough;
He needs to be within our hands and feet.
A fancy car without four tires rides rough;
A house built on the sand the floods defeat.
If Jesus is your Lord, then serve Him well;
A servant is no good laid up in bed.
When trouble comes all you can do is yell.
The storms of life will tear your house to shreds.
A tree with meager roots is doomed to fall;
The first time winds descend the tree will sprawl.
