With many stories like these, he presented his message to them, fitting the stories to their experience and maturity.

“Then Jesus said, “God’s kingdom is like seed thrown on a field by a man who then goes to bed and forgets about it.

The seed sprouts and grows—he has no idea how it happens.

The earth does it all without his help: first a green stem of grass, then a bud, then the ripened grain.

When the grain is fully formed, he reaps—harvest time!

“How can we picture God’s kingdom?

What kind of story can we use?

It’s like a pine nut.

When it lands on the ground it is quite small as seeds go, yet once it is planted it grows into a huge pine tree with thick branches.

Eagles nest in it.”

With many stories like these, he presented his message to them, fitting the stories to their experience and maturity.

He was never without a story when he spoke.

When he was alone with his disciples, he went over everything, sorting out the tangles, untying the knots.”
