[After teaching the crowd by the Lake with various parables, and talking to the disciples about why he spoke to the crowds with parables, Jesus asked them] ‘Have you understood all of this?’ They answered ‘Yes’.
Do we hear God when He asks whether we have understood what He has been teaching us? And when He asks whether we have understood what He has been teaching us, can we answer ‘yes’? Do we realise that God is teaching us through events in our lives, or through what we are reading?
Father God, thank you that you teach me in so many different ways, through Your word in scripture, through events in my life and the lives of others, through Your spirit within in me, guiding and encouraging, and through my conversations with You in prayer. Help me to listen and look for Your teaching and guidance in my everyday life. Amen.
