II Corinthians 4:18

Matthew 13:34-35

Gardening, fishing, friendship, citizenship, farming, celebrations, weddings, family, architecture, baking, sewing…Some of these are hobbies. Some of them are careers. Others are relationships. All of them are experienced daily by millions of people. They are your everyday mundane type of things.

They are also the basis of parables that Jesus uses to teach his people.

Our savior wants us to be so focused on Him that He chose to teach on the things we do. He knew that in doing this that we would be reminded of Him. He knew that we would grasp the concept if we understood the subject.

Jesus wants us to gain the knowledge He is teaching so that we can apply their realities to our life.

Pray that your eyes will be open to the teachings of Christ all around you. And then allow the Spirit to deal with your heart. You’ll be amazed at what you learn.
