"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
