Jesus was a master storyteller, and the parables He told were ingeniously simple word pictures with profound spiritual lessons. Each of them invites us to ask: "Have I understood? Has Jesus made any real difference in my life?”
The parables of Jesus don’t often attempt to give us grand theology. Many make no effort to move us to praise. But all of them force us to consider whether or not we have grasped - and entered - the kingdom of Christ.
