the seeds the sower broadcast
on different kinds of soil they fell
the seeds, they are the Word of God
Listen to the message very well
some seeds fell on the path
and the birds came and ate it up
Some fell on rocky places
it sprang up quick but didn't last
the seeds that fell on rocky places
where it did not have much soil
when the sun came up the plants were scorched
withered because they had no root -- growth foiled
Other seeds fell among the thorns
which grew up and choked the plants
but the seeds that fell on good soil
they grew and produced fruits, 100, 60 0r 30 times
let's look at this parable in a new light
aside from the lesson of how the seeds ended up
we know what became of them after they were sown
depending on the soil, whether they have grown
do we assume we are the good soil?
because we believe we grew and bore fruits?
but do we really? Come think again
look closer maybe in our lives, the thorny soil suits?
most of us grew quick and fast
and assumed that we have done well
when trials come our faith is choked
or when good fortune comes, it makes our heads swell
you and I are guilty
we are the good soil, we so assume
but we are told unless we bear fruits
and reveal God in our lives, let's not presume.
