“A Sower Went Out to Sow”
Lord, only you have the words that can bring us life, so would you by your grace cause us to be found in a position to hear and receive them so that we can benefit from them for our sake, for the sake of others, and for the sake of your kingdom?
“Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell on the path, and the birds came and ate them up. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and they sprang up quickly, since they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundred-fold, some sixty, some thirty. Let anyone with ears listen!” (Matthew 13:3b-9).
