A Wise Man
Matthew 7:24-27 - "...whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it."
The Keweenaw peninsula is very rocky. You see the rocky cliffs on Hwy 41 along the spine of the Keweenaw and on the shores of Lake Superior. Try to stick a shepherd's hook in the ground to hang a plant or a bird feeder, and you'll likely hit rock on your first 5 or 6 attempts. Steve often tells people that we followed the Lord's instruction and built our house upon a rock. He even wrote Luke 6:48 in the cement in our garage. When Jesus told us that a wise man builds his house upon a rock, He was telling us to build our lives upon the rock - Christ Jesus.
I made this free printable to add to the summer decor of our master bedroom.
The border matches the throw pillow I purchased at Kohls.
I printed mine as an 8x10 and added adhesive gems to the corners.
If you would like to print a copy, click on the following link:
It's a nice reminder to keep our focus on the Lord.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
