Explanation of the Parable of the Sower

Matthew 13:18-23

Seeds sown on the path, on rocky ground, or among the thorns, will die. The soil is not conducive to seeds taking root. However, if the soil is rich and fertile, the seeds will grow. Jesus is speaking to the crowd about the spiritual disposition to hear the word of God and about that which gets in the way of their hearing God’s word and will.

Prayer: Your law is perfect. Though some see it as restrictive, I see it as freeing. I am thankful to have it as compass and guide on the journey.
