Daily Bible Nugget #235, Matthew 7:24

The Nugget:

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

My Comment:

The Scriptures should not only be heard but obeyed. Making the teachings of the Bible the foundation of our life is like the wise man who built his house upon a rock. Christ emphasized we should take heed both what we hear and how we hear. But most of all Christ desires us to put His teachings into practice in our own lives. In order to do that, it helps if we read His Word on a regular basis and even study it so that we know what His sayings are, and what they command or expect of us.

For those who desire to DIG DEEPER into this subject:

(1) Consult the cross references given in Nelson’s Cross Reference Guide to the Bible on page 1027 for Matthew 7:24.

(2) Consult the cross references given in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge on page 1045 or in Logos 5 Bible software for Matthew 7:24.

(3) Lacking access to those two resources, consult the cross references for this passage as I have developed them as given below:
