I suggest you read the Mark text today… the point of the parables is to “get” an insight and then let it bear fruit because that begins the cycle of abundance. If you are open to some truth, even more will come. If you give some away, more will come to you. The spiritual cycle of abundance will have begun in you!
“Dear God, do not allow me to be stingy with your truth. Help me be open to the cycle of abundance of truth: the more I give, the more I will receive. Lord, where am I hindering my own understanding? I want all that you have for me! Amen”
