"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock" Matthew 7:24
In today's social-media obsessed world, we've gotten used to quick, efficient, and precise information. Using the Cliff Notes approach for quick learning is embraced by many for the sake of efficiency. There is little patience for the digging deep into the truth that really tells the whole story. But wisdom is knowing when to get the bullet points and synthesis, and when to dive in to the world of the story.

The parables of Jesus highlight compassion in order to teach us how to reflect His compassion to others. These great truths are worthy of the vehicle of a story to make them memorable and transferable. Every great story has a context. By paying attention to the clues surrounding a story you will get greater insight into the ideas involved.

Can you apply these ideas to the world around you? Can you incorporate them into your own life?
