Re:Verse passage – Luke 5:33-39 (day six)
7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find… Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”-Jesus, Matthew 7:7-8
Jesus’ parables were an invitation to seek the truth. Far more than illustrations, they were treasure maps meant to lure treasure hunters.
For those listening, patches and wineskins, were a door to be opened to fulfilled promises. To those not listening, or seeking, to those who already had it all figured out, the parables were a pronouncement of judgment.
That’s why Jesus said, “When your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness.” (Matthew 6:23) What we seek shapes our whole life.
