Why do you keep calling me “Lord, Lord”– and never do what I tell you?
Everyone who comes to me and hears what I say, and acts upon it– I will show you what he is like. He is like a man who, in building his house, dug deep and laid the foundations on rock. When the flood came, the river burst upon that house, but could not shift it, because it had been solidly built.
But he who hears and does not act is like a man who built his house on the soil without foundations. As soon as the river burst upon it, the house collapsed, and fell with a great crash.
