Bible: Matt 13:10-13

13:10 Then 1  the disciples came to him and said, “Why do you speak to them in parables? 13:11 He replied, 2 You have been given 3  the opportunity to know 4  the secrets 5  of the kingdom of heaven, but they have not. 13:12 For whoever has will be given more, and will have an abundance. But whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 6  13:13 For this reason I speak to them in parables: Although they see they do not see, and although they hear they do not hear nor do they understand.
