Today's Gospel reading from Luke 6 prompts me to ask how serious we are in following the Lord. Jesus asked his disciples, "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' but not do what I command?" He wanted them to listen to his words and act on them ~ this is likened to building a house with a solid foundation laid on rock. Otherwise, it's like building a house without a foundation, which can easily collapse and be destroyed. It's being either a serious Christian or a hypocritical one?
