Matthew 7:24, NIV: Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts
them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Another Sunday…another sermon. Each week, many of us attend a church
service and listen as God's Word is opened and shared. Each week we go home
after the service and mark the days, doing life as usual. Jobs, school, etc.
Though life goes on, it seems there is often a distinct line drawn between
church days and the rest. The Sunday sermons sometime lead to a, "Nice
message, pastor," comment in departure at the church doors; followed by an
inadvertent leaving of the message at the doors as well. God's Word to us,
however, is meant to be much more than warm sentiment. His Word is something to
meditate on, and to apply to our daily lives. It brings us nurture, peace and
grace -- and it will certainly bring us the much needed wisdom for all the days
