Bee Parables is educational and edifying. Become fascinated by the honey bee world and see the parallels to the Christian community. Building upon the concepts in 1 Corinthians 12, believers are encouraged to have an active and healthy role within a Christian community. Bee Parables does this by first explaining interesting facts about honey bees and then encourages a similar response among believers. Individual bees, each dutifully performing their designated tasks, contribute to the well being of the entire colony. Likewise, Christians are reminded to faithfully use their God given abilities to make a contribution towards the overall growth and well being of their fellow believers. The bees need each other for survival. Christians are challenged to consider their individual roles within their churches with equal seriousness.
