When Jesus taught, he often took the simple, in plain view realities and used them to explain some aspect of life that is hidden due to our dullness.

I looked outside, and in the darkness, I could tell that something was different with the tree just beyond our window. I looked more closely, but the darkness hid the reality from my eyes. It wasn’t too long before the sun began to chase the darkness into the disappearing night. And as I glanced out the window again … the tree, that had been all green the day before, was now covered … I mean covered in little white flowers … it was beautiful! And oh the fragrance that began to waft into our home. Two days later, the tree was green again … the fragrance gone.
