NEEDS, SEEDS, AND WEEDS

Please open your Bible and read the parable of the sower in Luke 8:5-15. Every person has needs in his or her life, but the basic need of each person is to grow, spiritually and emotionally. When the seed, which is the truth of the Word of God, is presented to a person, their attitude toward the truth determines whether or not they grow, and to what extent.

As you read this passage you will notice it mentions four types of soil, which represent how truth is received by an individual. This is the seed being planted in a person's mind and heart.
What kind of soil are you?

You will also see five "spiritual weeds" listed: Satan's influence, temptation, worries, riches, and pleasure. As in a physical garden, the weeds can take over and hinder the growth. Do you have any "weeds" in your attitude that hinder God's Word from taking effect?

I hope that every person reading this can be characterized by the soil in verse 15. "And the seed in the good soil, these are the ones who have heard the word in an honest and good heart, and hold it fast, and bear fruit with perseverance." Is your life bearing fruit for God? Does it have more weeds than fruit? Get rid of the weeds and start tending the fruit. May your SOUL be good SOIL, where the truth can mature. And remember this: fruit does not grow on top of the mountains, but in the valleys! Persevere in times of trials and testing.

Lamentations 3:40 exhorts us to "Examine and probe our ways, and let us return to the Lord."








If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
