The Parable of the Wise and the Foolish Builders was given by Jesus in the New Testament. The central theme of Christ as a firm and sure foundation (the rock) is echoed in the writings of the apostles and even to this day by artists and interpreters of the Bible.

From Matthew 7:24–27:

"Every one then who hears these words
of mine and does them will be like a wise
man who built his house upon the rock;
and the rain fell, and the floods came,
and the winds blew and beat upon that
house, but it did not fall, because it had
been founded on the rock.
 And every one who hears these words of
mine and does not do them will be like a
foolish man who built his house upon the
sand;
 and the rain fell, and the floods came,
and the winds blew and beat against that
house, and it fell; and great was the fall
of it." 

A Brief Explanation

Jesus mentions that the results of people's actions are universal which means that everything we do are common with another, when sharing the same conditions. He moves on to explain that seeking and acting on His advice will be so spiritually securing that it will be able to withstand Judgment. However, anyone seeking His advice, but not acting on it, will become spiritually weak. Their rebellious spirit will fail to withstand the power of the Judgment.

The first result shows that God is compassionate[by whom?], providing, and protective. The second result shows[by whom?] that He is just, righteous, and powerful.
