Jesus is famous for his use of parables—short metaphorical stories featuring people, places, and things utterly familiar to ordinary listeners—to get his often-countercultural point across. Typically, his parables are about the kingdom of God, which stands in stark contrast to the current world of his audience. For example, Matthew 13—which contains more parables than any other chapter in the Bible—contradicts conventional wisdom by pointing out how small things in this life—seeds and weeds, for example—are actually very big things. The parables of Jesus still teach us. Choose one to meditate on, rediscovering something wise to enlighten your day.
Jesus spoke to them another parable. “The Kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed with three measures of wheat flour until the whole batch was leavened.” Matthew 13:33 #dailyingodsword... See MoreSee Less

Sunday, Jul 25, 2021 SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME Celebrate mom-and-pop operations
However few dollars there are, parents make them stretch until payday. However uncertain the way ahead, they shoulder the decision-making for their brood. However dark the night and scary the storm, parents hug their little ones through it. Today our nation celebrates Parents' Day, honoring the grownups who make children's lives safer, happier, and healthier. While they may not multiply loaves and fishes quite like Jesus, parents do perform minor miracles of sufficiency every day across this country. They take imperfect human love and weave a blanket of protection and possibility for their tribe. Support your local parents!
TODAY'S READINGS: 2 Kings 4:42-44; Ephesians 4:1-6; John 6:1-15. "Gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted." #takefiveforfaith... See MoreSee Less
