What is Understood can be Understood Everywhere.

Dophin Write has a question here. Why don’t people “get it”?

To get his point across, he borrows from one of the 20th Century’s greatest authors. Here is how Dolphin Write explains what he is doing.

There are a couple of very interesting comments, among other good words, he shared with the West. The first is one we’ve mentioned several times, which is a ponder, but seems to bear out decade after decade. He spoke this in 1976, in Europe, and it has to do with the quandary of why it’s so difficult to wake people up and get them to follow the rabbit of reason along the trail of understanding.

Jesus observed something similar.

Matthew 13:3-9 New American Standard Bible

3 And He told them many things in parables, saying, “Behold, the sower went out to sow; 4 and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up. 5 Others fell on the rocky places, where they did not have much soil; and they sprang up immediately, because they had no depth of soil. 6 But after the sun rose, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 Others fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them out. 8 But others fell on the good soil and yielded a crop, some a hundred, some sixty, and some thirty times as much. 9 The one who has ears, let him hear.”

What was Jesus saying with this parable? Why was He speaking in riddles? We are fortunate that His disciples asked and wrote down His answers. To learn those answers read what follows The Parable of the Sower (see https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+13&version=NASB)

Still, there is more to this puzzle of human nature. The Parable of the Sower doesn’t explain why we often have to go through hard times before we will follow the rabbit of reason. That’s explained in another Bible passage, Hebrews 12 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Hebrews+12&version=NASB) starting at verse 4.

That passage in Hebrews 12 is about discipline. It takes great discipline to follow the rabbit of reason. Rabbits are highly evasive, and they hide in deep holes. To learn self-discipline, we must receive discipline by someone wiser than our self, and our Lord is infinitely wise.

Therefore, if we would be wise, we must turn to our Lord and gratefully seek wisdom from Him and accept His discipline as needful if we would avoid far greater misery.
