Pride Parable And Truth

Then he began to speak to them in parables.”Mark11:27-12:12  Speaking plain truth is difficult for for the proud to hear. Pride, if not careful closes the mind and heart to ones own truth. Parables allow one to view truth from a distance (told in third person). If you can understand the parable you can understand the truth and then apply it to your own life. Even when the Pharisees understood the parable they refused to accept the truth. We must be careful not to let pride keep us from hearing the truth. Having difficulty focusing on the Kingdom? Read a parable!

“When the season came, he sent a slave to the tenants to collect from them his share of the produce of the vineyard. But they seized him, and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed.”

What has God given you that you are unwilling to return to him?
