(part of the Duty, Apathy, and Passion series)

the readings
  • "wise man"
  • "the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house"
  • "foolish man"
the thinking
  • The external circumstances are the same.
  • Wisdom and foolishness are determined by the fruit of righteousness--by doing the will of the Father.
the writing
This is a direction I did not think the "Duty, Apathy, Zeal" lectios would go. But here I am. The Sermon on the Mount--of which this is a capstone passage--is taken by some to be legalistic, but this is not at all the case. The fact is that God has set before us two ways. One way is wise: do the Father's will. The other way is foolish: do not do the Father's will.

The question that remains is, What is the Father's will?

(and, How do duty and zeal fit in?)
