To me this parable is about the condition of our spirits, and how we receive the Word of God, and how do we water or cultivate the ground so that we can be good ground. Do we have things that stand in the way so that the Word that is sown into our spirits, cannot grow, this is the question to be asked.Why is this Parable so important to us ? Jesus did ask if you can not understand this parable how can you know all parables? What are we to learn fromthis parable ?
Thank You for your replies
Isn't it interesting how Adam was suppose to tend, and protect the Garden in which God placed him?Sometimes to get the seed planted you have to work at pulling up the thorns and thistles first and with the hammer of the word break up the fallow ground and pluck out and toss away all the stones....then once planted the true spiritual farmer cannot just walk away but has to patiently cultivate and water with prayer and much instruction as God causes the opportunity to rise....sow to the Spirit and grow not weary in well doing and in due season you will reap (different lengths of time for different plantings...green herbs grow fast but fruit can take years)
Think about it....
