Parents, today’s Bible story focused on how Jesus taught about God’s love. Jesus told three parables to emphasize how much God loves His people and how He rejoices when one person trusts Him as Savior and Lord.
“When Jesus teaches a parable, he is not opening up Chicken Soup for the Soul or a fortune cookie but a window into the hidden heaven lies,” Wilson explains. “He is revealing a glimpse of eternity crashing into time, a flash photo of his own wisdom brought to bear.” Read more of Jared Wilson on “The Gripping Glory of Jesus’ Parables” here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/chuck-the-flannelgraph-jared-wilson-on-the-gripping-glory-of-jesus-parables/

Faith plays an often unrecognized role in our daily lives. We exercise faith every time we get into our cars, trusting they will start and all the parts will work as designed. We trust based on what we’ve been told. Unfortunately, we’ve also had times when our faith was misplaced; the person or object we trusted didn’t do what we trusted them to do.
