Building Wisely?

While reading the end of Matthew 7 this morning  I thought about a repeated phrase I read in Genesis 7.

Jesus said, “Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  And the rain fell, and the floods came and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.”  Matthew 7:24-25

In Genesis 6 and 7 one reads these phrases.

Genesis 6:22 Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him.

Genesis 7:5 And Noah did all that the LORD had commanded him.

Genesis 7:9 …two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah.

Noah was a good example of one who built his “boat” wisely!
