A few weeks ago i started up on a puzzle that had not been touched for over a year. I felt it was a good way to spend my time after my rather intense days and along the way i learnt some valuable lessons
The first five days were quite promising but on the fifth day someone sat on the old couch (which had not been in use for a very long time) and everything fell apart.
It was rather frustrating considering the progress i had made but it taught me that no matter the effort we put to accomplish certain goals, if the foundation is poor all our efforts are in vain.
Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.
25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.
26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
