Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples. – Mk 4:34

Jesus spoke in parables: simple stories used to illustrate an important principle. Not everyone understood what He was saying; but some had the courage to ask.

Revelation comes through relationship. When Jesus was with the masses, He spoke in parables; but when He was with the disciples, He spoke plainly! When the disciples didn’t fully understand what Jesus was saying, they asked Him to explain in private. God tells us to, “…come boldly to the throne of grace” (Heb 4:16), knowing that He is always available!

Whatever it is you don’t understand: ask God. He will explain all things to you.

Prayer:

Father, thank You for the open invitation to pursue You. Thank You that whenever I don’t understand something, all I have to do is ask!
