Every one therefore that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them, shall be likened unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. Matthew 7.24.

The wise man is he who does the words of the Lord, while the foolish man is one who does not obey them. The rock stands for the words of the Lord, but the sand signifies the ideas of man. To build upon the rock is to do everything according to God’s word; to build upon the sand is to do things according to one’s own ideas. “The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom” (Prov. 9.10). It is therefore wise to be simple before God and foolish to rebel against Him. To say “perhaps” or “according to my own opinion” is really being foolish. To do what God says may look like utter foolishness to man but it is real wisdom to God.
