I Wonder

Mattthew 13:1-9/18-23

Jesus used many stories, or parables, when speaking to the crowds. These stories compare something familiar to something unfamiliar, helping us understand spiritual truth by using everyday objects and relationships. Jesus’ parables compel listeners to discover truth, while at the same time concealing the truth from those too lazy or too stubborn to see it. To those who are honestly searching, the truth becomes clear. We must be careful not to read too much into parables, forcing them to say what they don’t mean. Each parable has a central meaning unless otherwise specified by Jesus. Let’s now listen to the parable of the 4 soils.
