    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.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    Pray a Prayer of Release

    '...[The] curse does not come to rest.' Proverbs 26:2 NIV

    Author Stormie Omartian grew up with a mother who told her she was worthless. She locked Stormie in a closet because she couldn't 'stand to see her daughter's face'!

    Stormie writes: 'I was raised by a mentally ill mother...and...her behaviour left me with guilt, hopelessness, helplessness and deep emotional pain.

    By the time I was a young woman I was still locked in - only the boundaries were emotional not physical - a deep, ever-present pain which expressed itself through self-destruction and paralysing fear.

    Years later [with help from a Christian counsellor] I learned that unforgiveness as deeply rooted as mine...must be unravelled one layer at a time.

    One day I felt led to pray, Lord, give me a heart like Yours for my mother. Immediately I had a vision of her as a beautiful, fun-loving, gifted woman with no resemblance to the person I knew... I was seeing her the way God made her to be, not the way she'd become.

    What an amazing revelation! In an instant I put together the pieces of her past - her mother's tragic death...the suicide of her beloved uncle and foster father, feelings of abandonment, guilt, bitterness and unforgiveness...Touching the heart of God brought such forgiveness that when she died...I had no bad feelings. In fact, the more I forgave her the more God brought to mind good memories... People are often the way they are because of how life shaped them, and only God knows their history.

    To enjoy everything God has for you, pray a prayer of release and let go of the past.' Only then can you move on.
