    Gossip & Slander

    “A man who lacks judgment derides his neighbor, but a man of understanding holds his tongue. A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret” (Proverbs 11:12-13).

    The Bible tells us that “a perverse man stirs up dissension, and a gossip separates close friends” (Proverbs 16:28).

    Parables of Jesus

    Jesus' parables are short stories that teach a moral or spiritual lesson by analogy or similarity. They are often stories based on the agricultural life that was intimately familiar to His original first century audience.

    Some aspect of an unfamiliar concept, such as the kingdom of God, was compared to something from everyday life that could easily be understood.

    ‘…Because you say so, I will...’
    LUKE 5:5 NIV

    ‘[Jesus] said to Simon: “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will…” When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break’ (4-6 NIV).

    Notice two principles in this story:

    1) God will use failure to get your attention. Peter was tired, empty-handed and disappointed when Jesus spoke to him. And He will speak to you through a rocky marriage, a child you’re about to give up on, or a job that seems too hard. He doesn’t want you to run from your problems, He wants you to learn from them; to discover the difference He can make in your situation when you invite Him into it.

    2) God can take you back to the place of failure and give you success. We assume that because we weren’t successful at something, it wasn’t God’s will. But often the truth is that we failed because we relied on our own strength instead of His.

    When Jesus spoke, the fish responded. The Bible says: ‘…They caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. So they signalled their partners in the other boat to come and help them and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.’ (vv.6-7 NIV). God is not limited by your circumstances, He’s only limited by your unbelief. When you obey Him, you’ll discover He has a level of abundance in mind that will exceed all your expectations.
