Parable Of The Wise and Foolish Builders

Building our lives on a strong foundation.

How much do you know about house building? If you’ve ever built a sandcastle on the beach, you’ll know that sand is not the best material for a foundation!

In telling this parable, Jesus wanted to teach us something about the best way to build our own lives: the right foundations are key. Just like the wise builder, we need strong and solid rock to build on. Shifting sand may be easier to work with and take less effort, but as the foolish builder discovered, it won’t last long.

The Bible is God’s instruction manual for living our lives in the best way possible, starting with the best foundations.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • How will having a good foundation help us when the ‘storms’ come, and times are hard?
  • What can we do to make sure we are building our lives on a good foundation?
