In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.
In His teaching, Jesus used stories called parables to describe the kingdom of heaven. These stories were told with a purpose, using memorable word pictures to initiate conversation and point to a larger truth.
After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer about the kind of kingdom Jesus taught about. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.
