Understanding and doing rightly—the basis for spiritual building

Christ Jesus understood the importance of building a house on a proper foundation. He used this knowledge when he explained what is needed as a basis for building a Christian life. He said: "Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them ...: he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock."

The remainder of the parable stresses this practice of divine precepts by adding, "He that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth." Luke 6:47-49.
