Why doesn’t everybody take advantage of Jesus’ offer to be saved? Why would anyone reject it? Jesus looked at the question in a great parable (The Sower) in Luke 8. This parable helps us understand people’s reactions and motivates us to keep reaching out to people who haven’t responded to Jesus yet.
In Matthew 13, Jesus compared Christianity to a man who found a valuable treasure in a field he was plowing. This parable shows the importance of the kingdom of God and why Jesus deserves full devotion. It shoots down the myth Christians shouldn’t be too dedicated to their faith.
