the parable of the wise and foolish builders

Stewart Redwine

In this video, a college student procrastinates on a crucial term paper because of the distraction of a new boyfriend. She is like the fool in Jesus’ parable who chose the path of least resistance by building a beach house instead of putting in the hard work upfront by building on a rock foundation. Jesus points out that the wisdom of a rock-solid foundation only becomes apparent in a storm. When faced with an impending deadline the foolish student in this video takes an ill-advised shortcut on her term paper and suffers serious consequences.

Luke 6:46-49 46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? 47 As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. 48 They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. 49 But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”
