In Bible we read the following passage Matthew 7:24-27 about two builders. The students in pairs retold the story using story stones. As you can see on the stones we have the foolish builder, the house that was near the water, the wise builder, the house that was on the rock and the complication the rain. We talked through the meaning of this story that Jesus told: that true wisdom comes from trusting in Him and His word. If we build our lives on God’s truth then we will be able to persevere (keep going) when the storms of life come!
Matthew 7: 24-27 Two Builders
24 Anyone who hears and obeys these teachings of mine is like a wise person who built a house on solid rock. 25 Rain poured down, rivers flooded, and winds beat against that house. But it did not fall, because it was built on solid rock.
26 Anyone who hears my teachings and doesn’t obey them is like a foolish person who built a house on sand. 27 The rain poured down, the rivers flooded, and the winds blew and beat against that house. Finally, it fell with a crash.
