Reading: Matthew 13: 24- 43 (Click to read text)
In my years of teaching young adults, often they have questions and don't understand a concept. If I sense that they "just don't get it," I often try to think of an analogy that relates to something that they will understand.
I think this is what Jesus was doing in today's reading. He told three different parables and it seems like he told them to the same crowd of people. I bet he was sensing that they didn't understand what he said initially, so he decided to tell them the same lesson in another way.
What are some ways that you have done this in your work? How do you think God has sent you different messages over the years so that you'd understand them? --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
