Everyone loves a good story. Tonight, in millions of homes around the world, in hundreds of languages, children will put off bedtime with the simple request, "Read me a story." As our girls were growing up, this ritual was followed with another request, "Tell me a story." For the next few minutes, we would make up a story about a character of their choice, always ending with the same question and answer, "And what did they do next?" "They closed their eyes and went to sleep!"
Jesus was a master storyteller. He used what we often call "parables" as stories to illustrate important spiritual truths. Over the next few weeks, we are going to look at his Parable of the Sower (Mark 4), where Jesus used a familiar sight during his time - a farmer sowing his seed - to describe a spiritual truth people of every age need to know. Join us as we unpack this fascinating and important message.
See you Sunday!
