‘The Wise Man Built’ printable is a fun printable that children can color and then display wherever they want. The printable provides a good opportunity to talk to your children about what it means to built your life on the rock; Jesus Christ. Jesus told the parable of the wise and foolish builders as a way to encourage people to see that his words were a firm foundation to build our lives upon.

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Matthew 7:24-27
