The Parable of the Sower.

parable of the sower

Jesus spoke many times in parables.

A parable is a story that is easy to understand and helps people understand something that is very hard.  Planting seeds is called “sowing”.

Jesus’ story is called the Parable of the Sower and the Seed.

The people asked Jesus what the parable meant. He told him that the seed was like the things He was trying to teach them about the kingdom of God.

Different people have different kinds of hearts. Some believe the word and some choose not to. . Whoever has the word of God in them, to him will more be given and he will be richly rewarded. And those that do not have the word in them, they will not be blessed. And Jesus said, this is the reason that I speak in parables. The hard soil of the path was like the hard hearts of people who heard Jesus’ teaching but did not even understand or care what it meant.

If you have ears hear the word of God and if you have eyes seek the word of God. There are some that do not want to listen to the word of God. And there are some that do not want to see or know the truth.

Most people stay like babies in Christ, there is no growth in their lives. Some do not grow in wisdom and knowledge. The person whose heart is like the good soil always has a hunger and a thirst for God’s word and wants to listen to God and make him happy by obeying him.

Do you have Jesus in your heart? Does God’s word grow daily in your heart? Are you growing up to be like Jesus? He has done so much for us let us learn to be more like Him.
