Extended reading: Matthew 12:15-13:2 Jesus fulfills Isaiah’s prophecy; conflicts with Pharisees

Matthew 13:3-9

Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”


This passage shows that sometimes you may mess up in life – the farmer messed up before he found out what soil produced a crop. He planted more and more in the soil that was good, to produce a crop.



Dear God, help us on our journey to find the “good soil” and help us stay strong and smart through our mistakes. We give you the praise. Amen.
