Reflections GOSPEL: Matthew 7:21-27

In today’s gospel, Jesus points out that following him is more than a matter of simply saying words. We are each called to put our words into action. That is the way we truly do the will of God. Jesus compares it to a house that has a solid foundation and a house that is built on sand. If you’ve ever found water seeping into your basement after a heavy rainstorm, you know what it means not to have a house with a solid foundation. Our lives are like that. Living according to God’s words and teachings make up the solid foundation of our lives. Faith becomes like the rock that will not erode. When God’s words are not deep in our lives, our faith is like a house built on sand which gradually erodes and is swept away. Action, not just knowledge or words, provides a secure foundation for a life of faith.

1.) What can we do to grow and increase our faith?

2.) What role do good works play in our life of faith?
