25 Jun Matthew 13:10-11

10 And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” Jesus answered them, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.”  

Wouldn’t it be great to know all the answers on a test before the test? You bet it would be! Jesus said a prophesy was being fulfilled, the people could hear but not understand, see but not perceive, and their hearts had even become dull (Matt 13:14 – 15.) The parables were meant to challenge them and us as well! Are you like one of the crowd? Do you hear God’s Word yet don’t understand it? Pray for God to give you wisdom to understand His Word.
