Jesus, Give It To Me Straight

This Sunday we finish our study of the parables in Matthew 13 that all begin with the words, "the kingdom of heaven is like..." In this last section there are six short stories, each giving us a different picture of God's kingdom. Why do you think Jesus uses such a variety of pictures? What do these stories tell us about who God is? Which ones make the most sense to you? "I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders." -Henry David Thoreau
