Description

Jesus' teaching is the only safe foundation for our lives

Faith in Kids has released a series of 8 lessons ideal for family Bible times journeying through Matthew's Gospel to see we need Jesus. This video and accompanying resource, which is lesson 1 of 8 teaches us that we need a rock to build our lives on.

The video consists of a short, child-friendly poem about the wise and foolish builders in Matthew 7 and a visual demonstration of a Lego house being built on soil and then on bricks to compare how they withstand a 'storm.' This parable is the conclusion to the Sermon on the Mount, and in it, Jesus tells us that we need to realise our total spiritual bankruptcy, so that we will come to him as our only hope, our saviour. Hearing his words and obeying them is like building on the rock, making Jesus the foundation. If we build our lives on any other foundation, our efforts and achievements are like sand – washed away in an instant. Possible Discussion Questions

  • If you were honest with yourself, in the quietness of your heart, how would you finish this sentence, “If the worst happened to me, in those dreadful hours, I would be relying on….”
  • What was wise about one builder and foolish about the other?
