Wazzat You're saying??

Have you ever experienced the "Wazzat You're saying??" phenomenon? I call it the wazzat phenomenon because right after listening to what someone was saying, right after your brain parses the person's words as logical, you just dont get it, and it makes you go, "Wazzat?"

That must have been what the people listening to Jesus went after He told them about the Parable of the Sower. Even His disciple went "Wazzat?". I too wondered with the disciples why Jesus used parables. Didn't that just make it a lot harder to understand? But He did explain...(Matt.13:1-18)
For this people's heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts

Many times we don't realized that we have allowed our hearts to become calloused. We joke around with things we're not suppose to be joking with and think that its alright. We tolerate things that happen that you know deep inside should not be tolerated. We compromise to gain instant gratification or are too lazy that we prefer the wrong things for convenience sake.
The people would have understood if they only opened their hearts, listened with their ears,and see with their eyes...
So the next time everything seems to be white noise, lets just step back, pause and see if the problem is not the parable...but us.
