Jesus used stories to teach life lessons. To teach kids about the religion Jesus followed try exploring some of Jesus’s parables in our workbook Nature Parables of Jesus. In the parables, we are not necessarily instructed by Jesus, but instead invited to explore life through his eyes and stand with him to understand what the simple stories reveal. Parables to teach life lessons are found in every religion.
- Don’t Hide Your Light Under a Bushel - Light does not struggle against darkness. When light appears, darkness simply disappears.
- The Tree and Its Fruits - The fruit we see in our lives is a reflection of our thoughts or way of being. Our lives mirror the seeds we plant and nurture.
- The Sower and the Seeds - Manifestations are always taking place, everywhere around us, from the thoughts and ideas put into law. There are no restraining or inhibiting actions that obstruct the harvest.
- The Birds of Heaven & the Lilies of the Field - At each moment, we are at choice to live from a place of anxiety and fear, or from a place of peace and serenity.
