What this section of the Bible reminds me of is how Jesus talks in parables and that the parables are not designed to be understood by everyone, but instead are revealed to different people at different times.
Heavenly Father, thank you for waking me up clothed in my right mind with my family. Thank you for keeping me safe and for being my Lord. Lord I thank you because you have given me too many blessings to remember. I ask that you continue tohelp me be what you want me to be and I will give you the glory, honor and praise. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
