Mark 4:1-20

Mark introduces Jesus’ unique teaching style using parables. They are similes or metaphors that draw themes from nature or from the common life of the people. They invite the listeners to doubt and question their ways and ultimately move them to God’s way. The Parable of the Sower speaks to the faith and belief of an individual and of a community.

We have all been blessed with extraordinary teachers at some point in our lives. Pray for them today.
