Sure Foundation, I Applied The Parable To My Lego!

Hi to all the kids around the world,
I wanted to share with you how the Bible helped me to understand something.  I love playing with my Lego blocks.  I like to build cars, trucks & caravans out of the blocks, but often the things I made were not very stable and were breaking.  My parents were telling me that the blocks I was using for the base of my vehicles were too small to carry the weight of the rest of the pieces and this was why my cars weren’t stable and broke.  I was often getting very frustrated because I would spend a long time building a car and then it would break.
 
My Mum kept telling me that I needed a stronger base/foundation for the cars, but I didn’t quite understand.  One day my Mum told me the parable from the Bible about the two men who built houses.  One built his on sand and when the storm came, the sand got washed away and the house collapsed.  The other man built his house on a rock and his house was still standing after the storm.
 
Then I understood that my cars were breaking because I was building them on a weak foundation.  Now I make sure that my cars have a strong foundation/base.  Now they are much more solid and I can enjoy playing with them much longer.

MATTHEW 7:24-27
 
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
 
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
 
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
 
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.,
