“You, then, listen to the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word about the kingdom and doesn’t understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the one sown along the path.” (Mt 13:18-19)
“They understood none of these things. This saying was *hidden from them, and they did not grasp what was said.” (Luke 18:34)
“Then He got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased. They were completely astounded, because they had not understood about the loaves. Instead, their hearts were *hardened.” (Mk 6:51-53)

How do we guard against being “without understanding”?
