I so appreciate this parable, it reminds me again of the significance of the Word and inspires me not to take it for granted.
How cool that God has seeds and He is scattering them across the ground, it reminds me that God is active in the world and wants to bring life. What a helpful metaphor, God’s Word is like those seeds, each verse is a tiny package with expansive and reproductive life potential. God partners with His people across the globe to scatter tiny packages of expansive and reproductive life potential. What about John 3:16, ‘For God so loved the world that whoever believes in Him will not die but have eternal life’. A tiny package of one sentence, but what potential for life and freedom is in that one verse!
God, forgive me for underestimating or dismissing your Word. Please help me to have a heart of good soil, that I would receive the seed of your Word and that it would bear much fruit in my life. Amen.
