Good Soil
I grew up surrounded by cornfields in a small Iowa town.  I smelled the fields when the farmers would fertilize.  I watched as they plowed, planted and harvested.  Farmers work incredibly hard to prepare the soil that receives the seed.  They pray with patience that God will send the balance of sun and rain so the seeds will thrive. Modern farmers do so many things to make sure the soil is right so none of the valuable seed is wasted.  But ancient farmers had a different approach.  They scattered their seed.  As they scattered it, some of the seed fell in places not always conducive to growth.
Jesus compares this process to how our hearts receive His Word.  Like growing mature crops from seeds, it is a long and fragile process.  The human heart is a fickle thing.  As we will discover this Sunday, the Parable of the Sower, or more appropriately named the Parable of the Soils, comes with a challenge.  Is your heart fertile soil for God's Word?  What have you done to prepare the soil of your heart, and more importantly, what has God done in you to prepare the soil of your heart?  See you Sunday!
