A great parable

This Sunday, we will continue our journey through Mark by taking a look at the parable of the sower (4:1-34). As I have studied, thought through, and prayed about this parable, I have come to appreciate the simplicity of the parable as well as its depth. I also have been challenged by its message.

A few questions I am asking are...
  • Am I attentive to God?
  • Do I recognize that He is speaking to me through His Word?
  • Do I desire other things more than God?
  • Is my heart hard or soft to the things of God?
As you can imagine, it has been a convicting week! Hopefully, the Spirit will use Sunday to help us listen to God more closely than we ever have before.
