“The reason I speak to them in parables is that ‘seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen,  nor do they understand.” (Matthew 13 : 13)

Jesus loves parables. A parable is a fictitious story which narrates a real life situation.  Jesus’ use of parables raises curiosity to reflect more profoundly to find the deeper meaning of what is communicated which can also be more than one message. Certain truths can be communicated more adequately through parables,  imageries and stories than through direct communication.  Jesus’ parables should stir us to understand who we really are and to become what we ought to.
