A Daily Devotion for Monday, November 28

Matthew 13:10-12

The disciples came to him and asked, "Why do you speak to the people in parables?" He replied, "Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them..."

I am not sure I understand what Jesus meant here, but to me, the implication is this: there is plenty to know and learn, but it might take a bit of effort. If one is not interested, and makes no effort, they will get nothing from the parables. The parables will remain confusing, odd stories. But those with the help of the Holy Spirit and belief and knowledge of Christ, will have access to the abundance of teaching/wisdom found in these stories, and will grow in Christ.

Holy Father, I admit I have not looked very deeply into the meaning behind some of your parables. I am realizing I may have missed important insights. Sometimes they seem very simple, but now I am realizing there is no doubt much, much more for me to learn from them. Thank you, Lord. Amen

Becky, transforming
