Everyone a builder
“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: “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 (Matt.7.24 – 26).
If you were to erect a structure, would you just close your eyes and build something or you would check out various prototypes to determine which house in particular you would build? We are all building but not a physical structure. We daily build our lives by the choices we make. And unlike the physical building that will last for a while, the building of our lives will last till eternity.
This building is constantly under construction and it is imperative we are careful about what we build on it. The materials we use will reveal the strength of the building. From the materials we use to the quality of the work we produced. Very important to state that by simply obeying the word of God, we are building with quality stones.
For every house is built by someone, but He who built all things is God (Heb. 3:4)
Paul warned about building with poor quality materials. Everyone’s work will someday be tested to reveal the quality, after which they shall be rewarded for either doing well or failing.
According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it (1Cor.3.10).
