"I will open my mouth to speak in parables"

Do you ever feel like you’re in a holding pattern with God? When you look at the world or the things going on in your life, you wonder, “why doesn’t God do something?” Jesus’ parables about the wheat and the weeds, the mustard seed and the yeast help us understand this question and a related one: how to wait well when God’s kingdom seems to be taking its time.
