BUILT UPON THE ROCK - BVENT0010
Jesus is asked to judge an inheritance dispute, but instead he uses this derisive conflict between brothers to affirm the eternal ideals of His Beatitudes which He taught in the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus teaches the wronged brother to forgive and love his brother. All who follow Jesus must learn that what we own has little to do with who we are. Important ideals of stewardship and preparedness are emphasized through the parable of the House Built on Rock.
