The Story

We start our look at commitment in Matthew 7:24-27 where we can read a parable Jesus told at the end of the Sermon on the Mount.  Two builders took two different approaches to building their homes.  One was built on a solid foundation, the other on shifting sand.  Our solid foundation is built on hearing and doing what Jesus says.

Bottom Line: Practice hearing and doing what God says. We can’t do what God says until we know what God says, and that begins with listening to God.  We pray that kids will learn the faith skill, HEAR, and discover how they can navigate and personalize God’s word.
