Transcript of audio:
In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells the crowd a parable about a farmer sowing seed. The farmer throws seed on a path where the birds ate it; on rocky ground where the sun scorched it; and among thorns, which choked the seed. Only the seed that sinks into rich soil can produce fruit. fourth will produce an abundance.
The seed is God's word that he calls us to hear. We are to scatter his word – the Gospel message – with abandon and keep sowing. Even if only a small part of what we sow bears fruit, God assures an abundant harvest.
What does God want you to achieve? What seeds does he want you to sow? Take some time today to sit with God's word and reflect on those questions.
