Luke 8, Jesus gave this illustration to a large crowd that was gathering to hear him. “A farmer went out to his field to sow grain. As he scattered the seed on the ground, some of it fell on a footpath and was trampled on; and the birds came and ate the seed as it lay exposed. Other seed fell on shallow soil with rock beneath. This seed began to grow, but soon withered and died for lack of moisture. Some seed landed in thistle patches, and the young grain stalks were soon choked out. Still other fell on fertile soil; this seed grew and produced a crop one hundred times as large as he had planted.” Jesus explained the story: The seed is God’s message to men. The hard path where some seed fell represents the hard hearts of those who hear the words of God, but then the devil comes and steals the words from them and prevents them from being saved. The stony ground represents those who enjoy listening to sermons, but refuses to let it take root and grow. When persecution comes, they lose interest. The seed among the thorns represents those whose faith is choked out by worry, riches, responsibilities and pleasures of life. So they are never able to help anyone else to believe the Good News. “But the good soil represents honest, good-hearted people who listen to God’s words and cling to them and steadily spread them to others who also soon believe.” FRIENDS, JESUS WANTS US TO GROW IN FAITH AND LOVE. HE ALSO WANT US TO SHARE GOD'S LOVE WITH OTHERS. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
