In this story, the houses are like our lives. The house built on the rock is someone who hears what God has to say and obeys Him. The house that wasn’t built on solid rock is someone who hears what God says but doesn’t obey Him. The floods represent the hard times that we all face. When the floods hit the house that wasn’t built on solid rock, it smashed to pieces! BUT the house built on solid rock didn’t even shake! We want our lives to be just like the house built on solid rock. When we obey Jesus He helps us to stand strong in any storms that come our way!
