During the life and ministry of Jesus, He often used parables as "gem tools" to teach the importance of the little everyday things that we often overlook as tools to enable us to see and understand the Heavenly Father's will and plan for living a life that is pleasing unto Him.
Jesus said in Matthew 17:20 "The simple truth is that if you had a mere kernel of faith, a poppy seed, say, you would tell this mountain, 'Move!' and it would move. There is nothing you wouldn't be able to tackle." (MSG)
Take these simple everyday parables and use them as a tool when life presents itself with rough spots. Like miners who use a little pick axe when digging for precious gems, we too, can successfully find the gold nuggets needed for our daily lives, found in these small parables....Gem Tools.
