“He spoke to them … in parables.” (Matthew 13:3)

You’ve probably heard many homilies. Which ones have stuck with you? Close your eyes for a minute, and try to recall one.

If you’re like most people, you remembered this one because it featured a compelling, memorable story. And this, as the title of a recent business book puts it, produced a message that is Made to Stick.

Jesus was a master of “sticky” messages, parables like today’s Gospel reading of the sower and the seed. They are not short stories like the kind you would find in an anthology or tell as a bedtime tale. Usually quite short, Jesus’ parables might be a simple image or description from ordinary life; if they’re stories, they often take a surprising twist. But always, they offer a comparison between something we know (a seed, a banquet, a lost sheep) and something that Jesus wants us to understand (the kingdom of God, the Father’s love).

Jesus’ parables stick with us because they open our minds and invite us into the story, which, if we have ears to hear, is endlessly deep. Each parable is like the seed in today’s Gospel—alive, good in every season, and capable of yielding an abundant harvest year after year, if the soil is receptive.

In a way, Jesus himself is the most wondrous parable of all. His life, to quote another book title, is truly The Greatest Story Ever Told. The whole gospel story presents the gripping drama of a Father who longs to save his children; about his Son, whose love moves him to carry out the ultimate rescue mission; about the Holy Spirit who empowered Jesus and now fills and transforms us into the likeness of Christ.

And now that greatest of stories continues on in each of us. Will its message stick? It’s up to us.

“Welcome, Master of the harvest! Sow your word in every part of me. Grow whatever crop you desire. I want to know you and love you more each day.”

Isaiah 55:10-11; Psalm 65:10-14;

Romans 8:18-23
