Matthew 13; Luke 8; 13
“𝚆𝚑𝚘 𝙷𝚊𝚝𝚑 𝙴𝚊𝚛𝚜 𝚝𝚘 𝙷𝚎𝚊𝚛, 𝙻𝚎𝚝 𝙷𝚒𝚖 𝙷𝚎𝚊𝚛”

Some of the Savior’s most memorable teachings were in the form of simple stories called parables.

These were more than interesting anecdotes about ordinary objects or events.

They contained profound truths about the kingdom of God for those who were spiritually prepared.

One of the first parables recorded in the New Testament—the parable of the sower (see Matthew 13:3–23)—invites us to examine our readiness to receive God’s word.

“For whosoever receiveth,” Jesus declared, “to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance” (Joseph Smith Translation, Matthew 13:10 [in Matthew 13:12, footnote a]).

So as we prepare to study the Savior’s parables—or any of His teachings—a good place to start is to examine our hearts and determine whether we are giving the word of God “good ground” (Matthew 13:8) in which to grow, blossom, flourish, and produce fruit that will bless us and our families in abundance.
