Sowing Seeds & Getting a Harvest! (Part 3 of 4)



What Kind of Ground are you Sowing into?

Genesis 8:22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Luke 8: 5-8 A sower went out to sow seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the traveled path and was trodden underfoot, and the birds of the air ate it up. 6And some [seed] fell on the rock, and as soon as it sprouted, it withered away because it had no moisture. 7And other [seed] fell in the midst of the thorns, and the thorns grew up with it and choked it [off]. 8And some seed fell into good soil, and grew up and yielded a crop a hundred times [as great]. As He said these things, He called out, He who has ears to hear, let him be listening and let him consider and understand by hearing!

Reflection: Yesterday we talked about the ground with circumstances & undesirables. Today we are going to talk about the ground with anxieties and cares! We learned yesterday that the seed (the word of God) never changes, but the conditions that are present can & will. We also learned that the first step to sowing a seed is obedience. The second step to sowing a seed is taking action! Next we discover the ground we are about to sow into.

Ok let’s look at what the next sower does! This seed fell among the thorns, these are [the people] who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked and suffocated with the anxieties and cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not ripen (come to maturity and perfection).

Have have ever seen a berry or tomato that is not quite ripe yet? In order to come to full maturity a seed must have the proper environment & nourishment. When we are growing up in Christ we can’t allow the cares & anxieties of this world to cause us to think differently about the word of God! We will always have cares & anxieties in this world, but the word says be of good cheer because I have over come the world!
