The Parables Of Jesus
What God Loves More Than You (Luke 11:4-8)
It’s the middle of the night. And you find yourself pounding on your neighbor’s door, asking to borrow some food for a last-minute guest due to arrive at any minute. How do you suppose they would respond? Another of Jesus’ most misunderstood parables, this passage reveals a powerful truth about the very heart of God. Because what you seek, you will find.
We all love stories. Ever since we were young. It’s the way we learn about who we are. So is it any surprise that Jesus uses stories to teach His children? And Jesus’ stories are so compelling that they are known throughout the world, both in and out of church. Much more than entertainment, Jesus' stories challenge all of us to continuously adjust our view of life, our thinking, and our way of living. For throughout the parables of Jesus, we are in fact being invited into a bigger story. His story.
