 “A Sower went out to sow.”

Matthew 13:1-23

What kind of soil are we? This is the question we’re invited to reflect on today. We might like to Imagine that our heart is this field where Jesus plants the seed of his word. We know that not all the seeds Jesus plants bear fruit in our lives. Some seeds are lost.

What are the birds in our lives that come and eat in the seed Jesus plants? Does our soil lack depth? Do we have any thorns in our hearts that choke the seeds of Jesus’s word? Jesus desires that our soil be rich and healthy so that his word can bear much fruit in our lives. What steps must we take so that our lives bear the fruit that God desires?
