I Am The One Woman Show!

If you are like me, you are a “one woman show” for your business.  Which means you have to cover all the bases like advertising, web site design and promotions; along with managing and writing for  Face Book pages, Blogs, and Websites. Some days it can be over whelming but when you are on a shoe string budget, you have no choice.  And because promoting on the internet is ever-changing; i.e. Google, I have to stay up to date on what is happening.   

I received an email about a webinar which I will be attending and thought I should pass the information to those of you, one man and one woman shows out there.

AMP for WordPress – WP Engine Webinar with Yoast SEO

Jesus and His Parables

We all know that Jesus spoke in parables when addressing the crowds.  Basically, Jesus told stories which compared an earthly contrast or comparison and a spiritual truth. The Great Teacher and His parables would enlighten the crowds, who came to hear Him speak.  Or would they?

I once thought, wrongly, Jesus told His parables so that the masses could understand. Jesus told the parables not their meanings to the crowds.  I guess because I have grown up hearing Jesus’ parables and then the Pastor immediately explain it, I did not fully realize that back then there were no Pastors. Only The Teacher!

And for myself, If I had been there, I would have been tapping Him on the shoulder.

“Excuse me, I don’t get it.”

“Could you please tell me what you mean when referring to seed and sowing because it sounds like we are about to plant a crop?”

And, that is exactly what His own disciples did!  On more than one occasion they asked Jesus to speak plainly or to explain what He meant.

Jesus told parables to set up the groundwork for a real and lasting relationship between ourselves and God.

How many times are we told in the bible, to seek God? How many situations would have had a better outcome, in your life, if you had sought God’s advice and help first?  Using God’s building blocks, builds a secure relationship with Him! And no one or entity can take it away from you or tear it down.  Not even death.

During this Easter season, please spend each day seeking God and understanding Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.  Read the four Gospels; Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to start your solid foundation.  The forty days and five Sundays, which we have left of Easter, is enough time to begin your habit of a lifetime.  A relationship with Jesus Christ!

And if you don’t understand the meanings of scripture, well you are blessed to be a part of this century.  The resources are abundant! Most bibles have explanations at the bottom. Pastors love to be able to utilize their education and enlighten another soul. Oh yes, you can Google your questions also.
