Second Wednesday in Lent 2011

He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.” All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.” ~ Matthew 13:33-35 (ESV)

Lord, Jesus spoke in parables so the world cannot easily understand. Your truth is available to all who are willing to listen to Your voice and read and study to understand Your Word. Give me the desire to know Your Word and Your truth and lead me in understanding. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
