Jesus taught in parables to get the attention of people that had closed their ears to the teaching of straight doctrine. The parable stories had the truth worked into them. The people who listened carefully could understand the point of the parable but those who listened casually heard only an interesting story.
Jesus explains that the Gospel touches everyone differently
The light of God was brought into the world to enlighten every dark place, not to be hidden.
If we listen to the Lord more, he will give us more to hear. When we walk with Jesus we will result in more fruit.
The birds in this parable represent evil. The parable indicates that even though the church will grow to a great size, evil forces will still come in.
