I think that it is important to be able to divide numbers because you need to do it a lot in daily life situations. Especially using money, like seeing how much of something you can buy with all of your money.
My problem with this unit was getting the hang of the long division method that my teacher taught our class. I usually use the partial quotients method, but the new method was helpful too.
The parable of the sower and the seed is about a farmer that went out to sow his seed and he scattered his seed along the path. The crows came and ate them up like the evil one(Satan). Some seeds fell on rocky places where there was shallow soil so the seed quickly sprang up like the man who heard the word of god and understood. But then the sun came out and withered the plant away. The third seed fell among the thorns like the man who lived among bad people. The thorns grew up and choked the plants. Other seeds fell among good soil and made a good crop like the man who heard the word of God and lived with god his whole life. This parable is about listening to God.
