Gospel of Matthew 7:21-27 Reflection; Today's gospel is about foundations. Jesus says that the real foundation for a life is to hear the word of God and to do it. He compares it to a man building a house on rock or on sand. The house on rock can withstand storms, the house on sand shall fall.
And where is the ‘good foundation’ for your spiritual life?
Basically what Jesus is asking us is where is the foundation of our lives. Is it a weak, vague belief in him or is it a belief that calls us to action. We all know that Jesus is God and that his words call us to make a choice.
If we choose to believe then it carries with it the obligation to obey. If we choose to be vague, while it shall make no demands, it is of little use when the storms come. So where is our foundations in life?
