I have been offering teachings on the Kingdom of God for the members and others who may need a closer work with the Lord.  There parables are among the very first teachings of Jesus for his disciples.  If we study them carefully, we learn what it takes to be a disciple and why God is calling some of us to be disciples.  The last four years have resulted in monumental changes for many Christians and non- Christians alike and we may have to go back to the principles to rediscover how we are to serve God.  It will help our finances and make us more aware of the struggles we have and the way in which the enemy tempts us.  We can get our needs met regardless of the economic situation in this country.

The Kingdom Parables are in Matthew 13.  Here is the teaching on the Parable of the Mustard Seed and the Leaven which teaches us how the kingdom grows.  This parable can be applied to our Christian lives and to our work.  Sometimes we are impatient about our growth and give up because we fail to see immediate results.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price reminds us of how valuable the Kingdom of God is and hopefully it will be a wake up call to many Christians.  God is so patient with us and sometimes it takes awhile for the word to work on our hearts, because we grow according to God’s will..   We have to understand the great gift that God has given us and to take advantage of the opportunity to serve him. 

In the Parable of the Growing Seed we learn that the seed has to be planted properly and we learn our responsibility in the care of the seed. We also learn what happens when we fail to plant the seed properly. We do not want to be listed among those who failed to nourish the seed at the end of days. 

We learn about the people who attend the churches and why some grow and some do not in the Parables of the Wheat and the Tares and the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares – Part 2, and the Net Cast into the Sea..  (This lesson was originally labeled as the Parable of the Sower, but I changed it the day it was aired.).  All of these parables speak about good seed and bad seed and the ramifications of each.

In conclusion, if we want to be good seed, we must be thoroughly familiar with the teachings of Jesus as well as the enemy’s schemes.
