I have never taken a foreign language. When I hear some phrases in Spanish or French, I may recognize a few words; but I don’t understand it.

Matthew 13:23, “But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, . . .” Modern English Version

Jesus taught in parables, which he later explained to his disciples. Even though everyone heard them, they didn’t understand them. It is not enough to read the Bible, you need to understand it.

Matthew 13:11, “He answered them, ‘It is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,’ . . .” Modern English Version

Dear Father God,

Thank You for the Bible. I pray that You will show me where to get answers when I don’t understand a passage. I want to learn the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven. Show me.

In Jesus Name,
