The Simple Secret of an Unsinkable Life

Artwork for Simple Faith: The Sermon on the Mount—A Study of Matthew 5-7

Storms and life go together. There is no place on earth where any of us can be free—completely free—of tension or pressure, trouble or pain. Escaping such is only a dream…a fantasy. Our need, therefore, is not to think of ways to get away from the storms but to learn the secret of going through them. This brings us to the last words Jesus spoke in His immortal Sermon on the Mount. As He drew His remarks to a close, He used a vivid word picture of two houses, built on opposite foundations. From this familiar illustration, we can learn the secret of an unsinkable life.
