Matthew 13:18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means.”
A parable is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. It uses physical symbols to illustrate a spiritual truth to tell a valuable lesson.
Sometimes hearers have a hard time understanding the meaning of a parable. People ignore the important features or try to focus on the details.
The Bible speaks to each of us through the Holy Spirit. I may read a parable and think it means one lesson, while someone else is inspired differently from it.
The important point is to listen and learn a spiritual lesson from the story and apply it to our lives.
