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: 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.
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: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
You are all familiar with this story, we always talk about how we need to have a sure foundation, which we do, but the thing that I want to point out is "the rain came". The rain came on both the house on the rock and the house on the sand. So it is with trials. We ALL get them.
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
We will have great days... great times... in our lives. We will have storms. We ALL will have storms.
Here is a quote that Chadman used in his talk today, it is by Pres. Eyring. "The great test of life is to see whether we will hearken to and obey God's commands in the midst of the storms of life. It is not to endure storms, but to choose the right while they rage."
