DG BookGospel: Matthew 7:21-29
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one
who does the will of my heavenly Father. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did
we notspeak in your name? Did we not cast out devils and perform many miracles in your
name?’ Then I will tell them openly, ‘I have never known you; away from me, you evil people!’

“Therefore, anyone who hears these words of mine, and acts according to them, is like a wise man, who built
his house on rock. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded, and the wind blew and struck that house. But it did
not collapse, because it was built on rock. But anyone who hears these words of mine, and does not act accordingly,
is like a fool who built his house on sand. Therain poured, the rivers flooded, and the wind blew and struck that house;
it collapsed, and what a terrible collapse that was! ”When Jesus had finished this discourse, the crowds were struckby
the way he taught, because he taught with authority, unlike their teachers of the law.

Reflection:

Whereas it is necessary that a house be built on solid foundation, it will be foolhardy to limit our attention to the foundation
alone and carelessly build the walls and the roof with poor quality materials. Fora house to be fool proof, it must have a
rock-solid foundation,strong walls, and sound roofing.If not, when the rain pours, the rivers flood, and the wind blow,the house
will collapse and what a terrible fall it will be! Similar danger can happen to our spiritual edifice. Many people begin with a strong
foundation on God’s word. But as their life progresses, they grow careless, offer merely lipservice to God, buy into cheaper
materials of the world, and go on building up their edifice on those weak resources. When tragedies strike, their house crumbles
and the foundation itself becomes astumbling block (cf. 1 Pet 2:7-8). May God be the foundation, the walls, and the roof of our
spiritual life. May God be above, beneath, before, behind, and around us ona daily basis.
