Gardening, fishing, friendship, citizenship, farming, celebrations, weddings, family, architecture, baking and 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 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 that are relatable to us. He knew that we would better grasp the concept if we understood the subject.

Pray that your eyes will be open to the teachings of Christ all around you and that you would be sensitive to the Spirit’s teaching. Jesus wants to meet you where you are.

Matthew 13:34-35
