21 Jun Matthew 13:3b-4

3b “Behold, the sower went out to sow; and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up.”

Everyone in the crowd that day understood what “sowing seed” meant. They had all planted gardens and many would have worked the fields in the surrounding countryside. However, Jesus wasn’t talking about actual seeds, was He? Do you remember what He was comparing sowing seed to? It was His word! In this portion of the story, the people listened to the Word but never heard or understood it. Pray that you are really hearing God’s Word today.
