Matthew 13:4-7. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them.

God provides us with a variety of ways to learn more about Him so we can be one His reflection. Our question is what kind of soil are we? When we read a devotion or scriptures do we allow the business of the rest of the day crowd out what we read? When we listen toa sermon do we really listen and take notes sower can meditate on it later? When we go about our day do we allow God to fertilize the seeds through the various circumstances He allows to come our way? Let us be sure to keep our soil fertile through prayer, confession and meditation that we don”t miss any of the ways God chooses to teach us.
