Pair of Bulls

Communication is any means we use to convey ideas – verbal as well as non-verbal. Language is that primary convention of communication where words and meanings are arranged together to produce and express clear and understandable thoughts. Words are the basic building blocks of language which, in turn, are the primary method we use to communicate. It's a beautiful thing that even when the words aren't particularly familiar or clear, the context of the message still does a pretty good job of conveying the main idea. Furthermore, depending on how familiar you are with a certain subject; abbreviations, euphemisms and jargon become the equivalent of another language inside of its parent language, conveying ideas more quickly in many situations.

Luke 8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.

Wind I think of Jeezus and tha pair o’ bulls, I think of the too groups; wons who gottit, and the utters who din’t. And I think “Sew whut did the utter groop git?” Thay herd the same storie as the furst groop. The storys Jeezus used were onez that the hearers would imeediatly undastand on the serfis, and yet sumhow the deaper meening was steel hiddn.

We may have the best Bible translation available, with study notes and commentary but if we’re not sincerely hungry and thirsting after righteousness (Matt 5:6), we might end up achieving a deeply intellectual yet Spiritually superficial and powerless understanding of God’s truth. God knows those who are His (2 Tim 2:19) and He shares His truth with them in the midst of wide and varied groups of people – I believe that sincerely desiring to know and follow Him are the keys to understanding. Remember, some people are bearing witness to the progressive revelation of magnificent, glorious and transformative truth…and others are just seeing a pair o’ bulls.

In Him,
