Parables of Jesus: The house built on rock

Parables of Jesus: The house built on rock
Lluís Raventós
Saturday of the Twenty-third Week in Ordinary Time
Gospel text
Lk 6:43-49
Jesus said to his disciples: “A good tree does not bear rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit."
Gospel's Commentary
Today we read a "classic" of Jesus' preaching: "Every tree is known by its fruits". That’s life! With the passage of time the results of what we have been sowing appear. Where do I lay the foundations of my existence? In good weather everyone laughs. But what if the winds and rains increase? Some stand firm; others collapse. - I can’t pretend to have always "good time". What I certainly can do is place God as the foundation of my life.
