Seeds and Souls

Jesus taught them in parables

To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables,

-Mark 4:11

These were common stories that had uncommon significance.

In this story, the “Parable of the Sower” we learn that the seed is always the same, the gospel, but the people are different. Some receive it and it grows deep and thrives… most, however, cannot fully receive it. BUT the sower, us, still distributes the gospel everywhere.

Are you spreading the seed? Do you give a word, or a card, an invitation, or something to everyone you come in contact with? There is no soil unseeded in this parable, what about in your life? What field have you neglected to seed? Go to it today!
