Recently in Nashville, a tornado ripped through town in the middle of the night. It was unexpected…It was sneaky…and It was destructive…there was loss of life and loss of property. In the case of this storm, it did not matter what materials the houses and businesses were made of. Buildings made of brick and stone might as well have been constructed of straw.
But Jesus told a parable that illustrates the importance of what our lives are built on – whether solid rock or shifting sand. When the storms of life hit, our foundation is exposed.
