What Kind of Soil is Your Heart? 🌻🥀🌷

“A farmer went out to plant his seed. As he scattered it across his field, some seed fell on a footpath, where it was stepped on, and the birds ate it. Other seed fell among rocks. It began to grow, but the plant soon wilted and died for lack of moisture. Other seed fell among thorns that grew up with it and choked out the tender plants. Still other seed fell on fertile soil. This seed grew and produced a crop that was a hundred times as much as had been planted!” When he had said this, he called out, “Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭8:5-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Lord, Helps us to Glorify you in everything we do.

““This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is God’s word. The seeds that fell on the footpath represent those who hear the message, only to have the devil come and take it away from their hearts and prevent them from believing and being saved. The seeds on the rocky soil represent those who hear the message and receive it with joy. But since they don’t have deep roots, they believe for a while, then they fall away when they face temptation. The seeds that fell among the thorns represent those who hear the message, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life. And so they never grow into maturity. And the seeds that fell on the good soil represent honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s word, cling to it, and patiently produce a huge harvest.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭8:11-15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Dear Heavenly Father, You know the soil of our hearts. Please til and work the ground by removing all rocks, thorns, and weeds that crowd the word of God out. Please help us to produce a magnificent harvest for your glory. I ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen. 🙏
