Passage: Matthew 13:10-17
1. Similar wording of verse 12 also appears in the parable of the talents of Matthew 25. In both cases, the ones who choose to hear Jesus and please the master were given more while the ones who refuse to do so were striped of what they were given. What does this show you about the ways of God?
2. In verses 16-17, what have the disciples seen and heard that the prophets longed to see and hear? Are we included in this blessing, or was it only for the disciples?
