Jesus teaches about priorities and virtuous and vicious cycles. In other words, if we make good use of what we have we will gain more; if we make poor use of what we have we will lose “even what we seem to have” (Luke 8:18). Once again, Jesus clearly emphasizes that we must pay attention to behavior rather than words.
Reading: Matthew 13; Luke 8, 13.
