Speaking in Parables

  • Jesus spoke about seeds, farming, pearls, and other “figures of speech” to teach lessons to us about God and himself (John 16:25–33).
  • When Jesus “tells it like it is,” we don't always want to listen.  That's why he spoke in parables: to help us see  deeper things.
  • When the time comes for us to speak plainly, we must do so, and allow God to take care of the rest.
