THURSDAY-1st Week of Advent:Year- C
Gospel: Matthew 7:21.24-27: The person who does the will of my Father will enter the kingdom of heaven.
I Reading: Isaiah 26:1-6: Let the upright nation come in, she, the faithful one.
The Wise and  Foolish Builder, Mt 7:24-27
Several applications are clearly seen this picture of house building. Jesus teaches us how to build a life like a house.
1. A wise builder: Hears the instructions and obeys them
a. He builds a house
b. he builds upon a rock
c. He faces a storm
d. He built wisely: The difference is the foundation
2. A foolish builder: hears the instructions and does not obey them
a. He builds a house
b. He builds upon the sand
c. He faces a storm
d. He built foolishly: suffers great destruction-the difference is the foundation.
Thought: The wise in heart shall receive more and more instructions from the Lord. His/her life will be directed by God. Building upon the rock takes time and commitment and energy.
A hearer only deceives himself or herself. The doer is the person who is to be blessed. He/she will withstand the storms of life. Jesus Christ is the only one foundation for every life (1Cor 3:11).
