背誦經節:「所以,凡聽見我這話就去行的,好比一個聰明人,把房子蓋在磐石上; 雨淋,水沖,風吹,撞著那房子,房子總不倒塌,因為根基立在磐石上。 凡聽見我這話不去行的,好比一個無知的人,把房子蓋在沙土上; 雨淋,水沖,風吹,撞著那房子,房子就倒塌了,並且倒塌得很大。」(太724-27

Memory Verses: Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.  But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.  ( Matthew 7:24-27)
