It is always a salutary exercise to meditate on the four grounds with reference to your own spiritual state. What is the Lord saying to you today?
No hard path with birds. No rocky shallow ground. No thorn-infested pasture.
And as we see, what are the marks of good soil?
“… The ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit,”
Let’s be encouraged to be good soil. To hear God’s word, accept it, and go about bearing the fruit of His Spirit.
* Gracious Lord,
Thank You for Your Spirit that works in us, causing fruit that is good.
Thank You for Your loving care for us.
And thank You for Jesus, who is Your Word become flesh. May we hear Him, accept Him, and point people to Him.
We would see Jesus!
