Secrets for Family Discipleship
in The Parable of the Sower

When someone asked Jesus why He spoke in parables, He said “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of Heaven have been given to you but not to them.” (Matthew 13:11)  What an interesting thought!  Jesus told stories that some people would only hear on the surface level, but to others, the secrets of the kingdom of Heaven would be revealed!  I don’t know about you, but I want to be one of those people that learn the secrets to God’s kingdom and how I can apply them to my life and in my role as a mom, don’t you?

One day when we were taking a neighbor boy home from school, my kids and I were talking about verses they were memorizing for homework.  The preteen boy riding with us couldn’t understand why he needed to memorize Bible verses at school; after all he could just look them up on the Bible app on his phone, right?  I knew this boy was a thinker, so I tried to explain to him why memorizing scripture is so important, and I hope it made him think.  Many youth and adults feel the same way today.
