Matthew 13:18-23

Jesus’ explanation of the parable invites the disciples to a deeper level of understanding. He states the obvious but then explains why the seed does not prosper and why it does. The seed of the word of the Lord will not take root in those who are ignorant, superficial, or conflicted within.

I want to be instrumental in helping others, especially parents, to be open to your presence within them and to listen to your word.
