Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Matthew 7:24

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock – Matthew 7:24 (NIV)

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but sometimes, I got really sick of hearing my mom tell me stuff. It’s not that I had a bad mom. In reality, my mom was pretty great. But like any teenager, I sometimes got sick of her advice and wanted her to just let me do my own thing.

However, there’s actually some pretty good things we can learn if we’re willing to listen to others. I’m sure there was a lot of heartache I could have avoided if I’d simply listened to my mom’s wisdom.

The same is true with God’s wisdom written in His word. When we hear God’s word, and do what it says, we are like a man who built his house on the rock. Why? Because God’s word stands the test of time. It doesn’t crumble, but it remains.

If we’ll listen to God and His advice on how to live our lives, we will avoid much of the problems and the heartache that’s in the world. So today, be sure that you’re giving the proper priority to God’s word. Ask Him for help and put into practice what He tells you to do.
