Sunday morning’s passage was Matthew 13:1-9. Sunday night was business meeting. My kids weren’t there, but we had a motion to adjourn just the same :)
Good Soil! Matthew 13:1-9 (audio)
What is Jesus talking about?
The basic understanding of this parable:
The four types of soil
How do we make sure the seed falls on good soil?
What can we do?
We cannot make seeds grow.
We ABSOLUTELY DO NOT HYBRIDIZE THE SEED WITH OTHER NONSENSE TO MAKE IT GROW BETTER!
We move rocks
The falsehoods that keep people from taking root in Christ
We clear thorns
The cares of this world
The blatant sinfulness of those who call themselves Christians
We prepare soil
We spread seed
God grants the increase in His time
And then we repeat, every season.
