Wise Builder – Rock Solid

As for everyone who listens to words of wisdom and puts them into practice, they are a wise person.  They are like a man building a house, which dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears the words of wisdom and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.

The pressures of life often come swift and quickly.  Like the man who “dug deep”, developing character takes a lot of time and energy.  Those with well-built character are able to stand up to the unexpected pressures of life.  Those who fail to build their character are often caught by surprise and are unable to stand.
