Parables

See also

Then the disciples came to Jesus and asked him “Why do you use parables when you talk to their people?”
Jesus answered, “The knowledge about the secrets of the Kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. For the person who has something will be given more, so that he will have more than enough; but the person who has nothing will have taken away from him even the little ha has. The reason I use parables in talking to them is that they look, but do not see, and they listen, but do not hear or understand. So the prophecy of Israel applies to them.
‘The people will listen and listen,
But not understand;
They will look and look,
But will not see,
Because their minds are dull,
And they have stopped up
Their ears
And have closed their eyes.
Otherwise, their eyes would see,
Their ears would hear,
Their minds would
Understand,
And they would turn to me,
Says God.
And I would heal them.
As for you, how fortunate you are!
Your eyes see and your ears hear, assure you that many of Gods people wanted very much to see what you see, but they could not, and to hear what you hear, but they did not.
God explains through Jesus and his disciples if not understanding Gods word than one must not care enough to understand so onto the next until one understands. Pay attention and I promise you will understand too, just like I do!!!!!!!!!!
To Leaven your bread will make your bread rise!!!!
