Today’s reading: Matthew 13:1-9
What type of soil are you?
Matthew 13:1-9 tells us:
1 On the same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea. 2 And great multitudes were gathered together to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them.
5 Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
The parable of the sower could also be called the parable of the soil.
The parable’s main focus here is actually the type of ground that we have.
You see, every ground received the SAME seed.
It was the type of ground that decided whether the seed will thrive or not.
This tells us that we must make sure that we have a heart that serves as a good ground for the seed we receive from God.
We must have a humble and willing heart to learn, obey, and yield to God’s will and purpose.
