Scripture

Matthew 13

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

What is the main point of each of the parables of the sower, the wheat and weeds, the mustard seed, the yeast, the hidden treasure, and the fishing net? Why didn’t Jesus do many miracles in His hometown?

Application

Does verse 52 apply to me? Would Jesus have done many miracles in my home?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Father God, I thank You for the parables that Jesus used to teach about Your kingdom. help me to be a student of Your Word who receives it and responds to it, that it may flourish in my heart and impact everyone around me. May I have the kind of faith in Christ that never impedes His work. I ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • Darrell & Fralina Leatham

  • Tris & Chris Miller
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
