Jesus ends the Sermon on the Mount with a challenge. After warning his listeners (and us as readers) about listening to false prophets whose words lead to death, Jesus says in essence, “I have given you teachings which will change your life and make it better, but it’s up to you if to accept these teachings and build your life on them.”

“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.  

— Matthew 7:24
