Mathew 13:1-52, Mark 4:1-34, Luke 8:4-18, Luke 13:18-21

Matthew 13:13-15 – For a long time this did not make sense to me. Recently, I've become aware of how easy it is to think that you know what's going on and what's true and can be completely deceived. What my church went through in the last two years really opened my eyes. I had men around me talking of the grave sins they saw, and it sounded like utter nonsense. What world were they living in? But I knew these men and I knew they were not the type to make things up. I prayed that God would open my eyes, let me see what He saw. I began to see how we pursue correctness over love, correction over understanding, being right over treating people right. I was overwhelmed at the sin right in my midst, and in my self, so much so that for an instant I longed for the days of ignorance. I wondered if asking for God's eyes was such a good idea. But I do not want to go back, I want to see as God sees and hopefully make a difference for His sake.
