“What’s Your Soil Type?”
Now before you go out and get soil samples from your fields or yards, I am not talking about the soil we plant in. Instead of me telling you about the different kinds of soil we might identify with, we will ask our Lord and Savior to explain this to us.
Please read the following verses. Matthew 13:3-8
3 Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly because the soil was shallow. 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop — a hundred, sixty, or thirty times what was sown.
18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path. 20 The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. 22 The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful. 23 But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
Our Lord does a great job explaining the soil types? Were you able to identify your soil type? If you are like me, you might have been different types at different points of your life.
As believers, we identify as the last soil type. We are to be producing other believers as we go through this life.
To change the soil, even to enrich the good soil, we use fertilizers, nitrogen, potash, lime, and other soil ingredients.
To change our soil type, we use God’s Word and the Holy Spirit. They will never let us down.
May the Lord God Bless You
Have a tremendous day in the Lord,
Let everything that has breath (this includes you) Praise and thank the Lord.
Be a Blessing;
