The Parable of The Sower
If you know anything about me, you know I like to explore different ways of looking at scriptures.
Today I’d like to explore a passage from Matthew 13
“A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no roots. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still, other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
What if there is another way to look at this passage? I want to use a prism concept here. Depending on what part of the prism you’re looking through, will determine what you see.
When I read this passage in the past, I usually interpreted it as my responsibility to make sure the soil of my heart was prepared for the seed of the Word.
