The Wise and Foolish Builders

Although it is familiar to many of us because of the old children’s bible class song, this parable teaches an important core teaching of Christianity. We must be careful where we place the foundation of the faith we are building. Jesus is that foundation.  

The Lost Son

The son in this parable thinks he has life all figured out and know exactly what he needs to be happy. He soon discovers just how wrong he is and wants nothing more than to go home again. Regardless of the road we choose in life, our Father wants us to do the same. We […]

The Wedding Banquet

In this parable a king invites people to a wedding banquet for his son. Those who are invited are unwilling to attend for various reasons, but the king’s plan does not end there. What things in our lives stop us from accepting God’s invitation?

Two different parables in Luke 18 tell us a lot about the kind of character we should have as we pray and in life in general. We should never give up and always remain humble, knowing that God is faithful.

The Two Sons

Talk is cheap. Most of us have heard that before, and we’ve experience how it can be true. In this parable, Jesus teaches the importance of following through with our actions instead of just speaking hollow words.  

The Rich Fool

According to the Self Storage Association (yes, that’s really a thing), “The United States has upward of 50,000 storage facilities, more than five times the number of Starbucks. Currently, there is 7.3 square feet of self storage space for every man, woman and child in the nation. Thus, it is physically possible that every American could […]
