SCRIPTURE FOR THIS MORNING (Matthew Chapter 7 1-29) How are your foundations looking?
Sayings Judge not v1 Ask and it will be given to you v7 Do unto others..... v12 Enter by the narrow gate v13 Beware of false prophets v15
Bible verse Matthew 7 v 24-27. Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.
Luke 6 v 49 And the ruin of that house was great.
Sand or Rock What will you choose as your foundation?
“YOU ARE FREE TO CHOOSE, BUT THE CHOICES YOU MAKE TODAY WILL DETERMINE WHAT YOU WILL HAVE, BE, AND DO IN THE TOMORROWS OF YOUR LIFE.” Anon
CHOICES JUDGE NOT DO UNTO OTHERS... FOLLOW GOD’S TEACHING JUDGE OTHERS LOOK OUT FOR YOURSELF FOLLOW ANY TEACHING
Rock - Reliable God is reliable.....I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13 v 5... No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Psalm 46 v 1 Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you;... Psalm 55 v 22 In my Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you.

Rock - Caring Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. 2 Peter 5 v 6 & 7

For the Lord is the God of knowledge;... I Samuel 2 v 3 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2 v 19
Jesus said that when we’re listening to his words on how to live our lives, then we’re being like the wise builder – building our lives on the rock. Just like a house needs firm foundations, so do our lives, and God helps us to have that.
Isaiah 28 v16 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; whoever believes will not act hastily.
