This is the twenty-fourth in a series of blogs on the ease of reading the words of Jesus in the book of Matthew … and the difficulty of following them.
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.
Your SQ (Spiritual Quotient) can improve greatly with this simple formula: Follow through with action on what you hear from God.
One way to hear from God is to read the bible.
An example of hearing-to-doing is, if you read in the bible “do not worry,” then do not worry.
If you read in the bible “be of good courage,” then be of good courage.
If you read in the bible … you get the idea: read and do.
Of course, as has been noted in this series of writings, it’s easier to read the Word of God than it is to do the Word of God. We all stumble. We are not perfect. But to not even try to read-and-do, well, that’s another story.
