Trees Fruit Hearts and Foundation video. The parable is obvious in meaning. Both houses looked fine with simple observation, but one is deceptive. There’s no foundation. When, not if, both houses go through the torrent – flood or catastrophic experience – it becomes obvious which house was real and which one was deceptive. When we simply say, “Lord, Lord,” but do not do what we know Jesus said to do, we’ve moved into a deceptive house. Collapse and destruction always comes when there is no foundation. When we do what Jesus said to do, no torrent or flood so much as shakes the house.

We do realize he’s talking about people. Though you can’t actually see the heart of a tree, the fruit reveals what is there. If the tree is rotten, toxic, and corrupt inside, the fruit will tell the tale producing sickly fruit, rotten fruit, or even poisonous fruit. If the fruit is good and healthy then the heart of the tree is good… (continue sermon notes)
