Jesus concludes his Sermon on the Mount with a series of parables and illustrations leading his hearers to the point of decision. He describes two gate and two roads (Matt. 7:13-14), two trees and two fruits (Matt. 7:15-20), and two foundations. As he concludes with an emphasis on the two foundations and the two builders, wise and foolish, Jesus is leading his hearers to the point of decision. Will they follow Jesus and his words or will they continue to follow the teaching of the scribes and pharisees? Their decision will determine whether the house of their lives will stand or fall.
