Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. - 1 Chronicles 16:11

Making Christmas Live Through Parables

In an article for the Preaching Today newsletter, Peter Chin writes: “We all know Jesus taught His disciples about the kingdom of God, but sometimes we forget that no one except Christ Himself ever had seen the divine and eternal reality. As such, the kingdom was a very distant concept for the disciples, if not an entirely confounding one.

"To address this, Jesus described the kingdom of God using everyday examples of life, or parables that were designed to connect with everyday experiences such as feasting, living within family, finding a fortune. This allowed people to place themselves and their own experiences into the context of that parable, so the kingdom might be more tangible and less removed than it might have been otherwise.
