Matthew 7:24

Matthew 7:24 - Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.

This is Jesus talking, but Jesus and God are the same, so that's cool. Comparing his words like a concrete foundation is an interestingly analogy. We all build our lives on something. Sometimes it's on the search for wealth or happiness. Sometimes it's on our heritage and traditions. But if we build our lives with a foundation of God's word, then have a strong foundation, and won't suffer when an earthquake comes.

And of course, it's important that you don't just hear his words, but that you act on them too. No point in reading the Bible if you ignore everything that's there. It would be like stopping by the pub on the way home from an AA meeting. If you're going to have God as your foundation, you really ought to be acting on his word, not just hearing/reading it.
