Posts Tagged ‘wise man built his house upon the rock’

verse 7: “The wicked are overthrown and are no more, But the house of the righteous will stand.”

My Holman concordance had a cross reference to Jesus’ words in Matthew 7:24-27. I’ll let you look that up for yourselves, but I’ll also give you a hint. Even before I opened the concordance, I knew this verse reminded me of a familiar Vacation Bible School song that goes something like this:

The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
The wise man built his house upon the rock,
And the rains came tumbling down.

And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the house on the rock stood fast.

The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
The foolish man built his house upon the sand,
And the rains came tumbling down.

And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the rains came down and the floods came up,
And the house on the sand went SMASH!

Coincidence? No. God-incidence? Yes. 🙂

Have a blessed day!
