Foolish to Wise

In Matthew 7, Jesus teaches the crowds what the life of a foolish person looks like compared to someone who is wise, trusting in and obeying his words. Both the fool and the wise person hear Jesus’ teaching, are building the foundation of their lives, and will face storms. The difference is in how each person responds to Jesus’ teaching, the foundation he lays, and how his life holds up when storms come his way. Using the comparison of building a house, Jesus warns the crowds of being foolish.
