What Are You Learning from the Parable of the Sower?
By Barbara Macczak
Do you bear good fruit for Christ? Or, do you spend your time, talent and treasure constantly acquiring more toys, clutter and junk. Our time, our talent and our treasure are gifts that God has given us. What we do with them is our gift back to God.
We are all called to graciously give back to the Lord in proportion to the blessings we have been given. This means everyone isn’t called to give the same amount, but is called to give equal sacrifice. No amount is too small or insignificant! Open your heart, how is God calling you?
A person’s reception of God’s Word is determined by the condition of his heart. Salvation is more than a superficial, albeit joyful, hearing of the gospel. May our faith and our lives exemplify the “good soil” in the Parable of the Sower.
