“For many are called , but few are chosen”.
If we go through the scriptures well, one thing that comes to our mind is, Jesus spoke primarily in parables. He wasn’t giving ‘word of God’ in plain simple terms. In spite of the fact that His listeners (those days) weren’t educated or intelligent men and women. They were all simple people. Yet Jesus chose to speak in parables. He was all the time telling stories about the kingdom of heaven.
His parables were more unsettled and confusing to the crowd than reassuring. He was giving all of them the same stories, yet some could probably understand, and some couldn’t.
As my Lord takes me to different ministries to share His words, I understand, that all are not at the same spiritual level. Some are growing, some are mature believers, yet some seasoned but fall into the trap of ‘pride’ of ‘knowing it all’. And pride brings them down back to square one as believers, since ‘pride’ itself is an abomination to God.

Even today, the parables have a remarkable ability to engage our minds and challenges our assumptions and knowledge.
We need to guard our hearts and minds ‘all the time’ lest we not fall prey to devils’ deceiving tricks .
Mathew 22:14 makes it clear, that many come to seek Him but ‘not all ‘ are chosen.
He gives us enough opportunity to re-examine some of our most cherished convictions about matters of external importance.
“He hides away sound and godly Wisdom and stores it for the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him), He is a shield to those who walk uprightly and in integrity”. (Proverbs 2:7)
Follow HIS LEAD. You can never go wrong
