Day 99: Parable of the householder Matt. 13: 51-52

Guided reflections:

Remember, Jesus is in his leadership development stage for his disciples.  THE MESSAGE puts it this way: “You see how every student well trained in God’s kingdom is like the owner of a general store who can put his hands on anything you need, old or new, exactly when you need it.”   Jesus wants to impart truth to them so they can pull out from within their hearts what they need – an old truth or a new insight… but to be ready to be used because they have taken the time to understand the kingdom.  Jesus still wants that of us… to know and observe all that Jesus taught!  Through this Bible Study, it is my desire that you begin to build up your storehouse with treasures.  Just like you computer, it is all about input and output!  If you have saved your files, they are there to be retrieved when needed!

Guided prayer:

“Keep teaching me, O God.  Help me to begin to develop a heart that is filled with your truth and insight.  Help me to not only have insights in my heart, but help me to keep them in my head as I make decisions about life, and in my hands as I do your work.  Amen.”
