Message Transcript A parable is a simple story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson. Some truths are just hard to grasp. Parables make use of imagination and symbolism to explain things that are hard to understand. This sermon takes a look at the parables in Matthew 13 and Matthew 20. We learn that the first will be last! The last will be first! The meek will inherit it all! The despised will be chosen! The poor come out on top! The foolish shame the wise! The powerless possess the most power! This is inverted thinking. This is insurgent thinking. This is a social revolution. So...what does it mean to you?
