    Hello brothers and sisters in Christ. I have a question for you. I was wondering if you all may be able to help me with the parable In Matthew chapter 13 verse is 10 through 17. I understand to most this parable may be quite simple, however from my experience I've realized The importance of getting everybody's idea on the matter and perhaps Learning something new that I did not know about it. Thank you all in advance for your help

    I read a variety of versions and sometimes reading one like the New Living Translations helps me with the ease of understanding.

    Here's what Jesus sais about his parables:

    For someone who has a fierce desire to understand the things of God and to know and grow and submit to His wisdom - a parable is good way to create understanding and to keep Godly principles in your memory bank.

    For someone who is interested only in facts, opinions, but not really the truth - a parable won't really mean anything to them except a nice little story with little personal meaning.

    To me, Jesus is saying that He is using a method of teaching that effectively imparts discernment to those who have "ears to hear".
