The parables of Jesus are ordinary stories with extraordinary lessons that expose our superficial faith and values. With His penetrating understanding of human nature, Jesus shows us the foolishness of seeing life from our limited, worldly perspective, while ignoring what God sees and values. His parables teach us how to live this life in light of the next. These 10 messages not only interpret the parables but also help us to apply them to practical issues such as forgiveness, prayer, and wise investments. We are challenged to live for the day when we will be called to account for how we lived on earth. This is life-changing truth for all believers.
