Matthew 7:24-27

Jesus ends the Sermon on the Mount with this parable.

Whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, I will liken him to a
wise man, who built his house upon a rock. And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house and the house did not fall, because it was founded upon a rock.  

And every one, who hears these sayings of mine and does not do them, shall be likened to a
foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell. And great was the fall of it. 

You might recognize these verses from the children’s song, The Wise Man Built His House Upon a Rock.
