Building our lives on ­the rock of Truth

One of the most loved sermons ever given, Christ Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, ends by making the point that before we can ever build up, we must first dig down—way down. 

Jesus was likening those who heard and followed his teachings to “a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.” Those who were familiar with his teachings but failed to put them into practice he likened to “a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great” (Luke 6:48, 49 ).
