Parable of The Wise And Foolish Builders

Parable of The Wise And Foolish Builders

The Parable of The Wise And Foolish Builders.  On one level, it’s about the choice between building a house on rock or sand.  That sounds like an easy choice to make.  On another level, it’s about what we do, if anything, after hearing or reading what Jesus had to say.

What’s important to you?

What's important to you?

What’s important to you?  Do we even take time to think about that question?  Or are we just so focused on “now” that we don’t even know what’s important? 

Maybe I should say, what’s important in your future?  You know, beyond the next few minutes?  Even better, your distant future?  Where do you hope to be at the end of your life? 

In other words, what’s your life goal?  What’s important for you to be able to achieve your life goal?  Do I dare even ask if you’ve thought about the next life?  What happens after this one?

What’s the meaning of life? Or is life meaningless?

What’s the meaning of life? Or is life meaningless?  Those are questions that lots of people ask at various stages of our life.  It’s maybe most important though as we get older.  We wonder, was it all worthwhile.  Or maybe even feel like our life wasn’t worthwhile.  Could we have done things differently?  Better?  And maybe we wonder, what comes next?

What else does God want from us?

What else does God want from us?

What else does God want from us? Since it says what else, obviously this isn’t the only thing God wants from us. Further, since this is part two, this is, possibly, the second thing God wants from us. Something that comes after we love God. Any ideas about what it is?

How evil will we become before Jesus returns?

how evil will we become before Jesus returns?

How evil will we become before Jesus returns? The Bible says our thoughts are only evil all the time. And it sounds bad. And yet, it’s generic. But when we get right down to the kinds of evil we perpetrate and even pass laws to allow them to continue, I can’t help but wonder. Just how evil do we have to get before Jesus returns to earth. Not as our means of salvation. Instead, quite the opposite. As our final judge and conqueror.

Who cries for you?

Who cries for you? Have you ever thought wondered? Maybe you don’t want to even think about it, because you think no one cries for me. But is that really true?

Are The Gates of Hell Locked From The Inside?

Are The Gates of Hell Locked From The Inside? - Revisited, again

Are The Gates of Hell Locked From The Inside?  The first time I wrote about this, I said yes.  The second time, I updated it to say yes, but I thought some Christians can’t relate to the concept of not wanting to be with God.  This time, many years later, I’m not sure some (many?) Christians even know what it means to be with God.
