This is the twenty-sixth 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.
My SQ (Spiritual Quotient) could use some help.
However, before I pump myself with a lot of knowledge and think that extra stuff in my head will make me wise, I need to think again.
It’s important to know that SQ has two components: (1) knowledge, that is knowing what to do, and (2) action, doing what you know is right to do.
The wise man was wise because he knew to build his house on the rock and he followed through: He built his house on the rock.
Wisdom is not only knowing the right life, it is also living the right life.
