Lent 2016--Day Nineteen

When Jesus preached and taught, the people were astonished at him because he spoke with authority. He was not hesitant, and he didn't mince words. He said they should build their lives on solid foundations. Building on sand was not substantial, and it would not weather the storm. Their lives needed strong supports that came with his words, and they must rest on his teaching. The scribes were versed in the technicalities of the law, but it was the Spirit of the Law that would sustain them in hard times.
