2086 words - 8 pages

Jesus taught his Disciples the word of God by telling stories much like in today's education. Using parables gives a greater understanding of the lesson being taught if it is related to our everyday life. Even Jesus understood the importance of integrated learning.The parable of the sowing of the seeds describe how each person accepts the word of God into his heart. The sower is Jesus Christ, and seed is the word of God. The throwing of the seed represents God's word is for all people, good and evil alike.Jesus said to his disciples "A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed some seeds fell on the path, and the birds came and ate them.The birds represent the devil snatching the word and hardened the heart to the word of God."Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and they sprang up quickly, since they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away."The seed that falls on rocky soil is the person who hears the word of God, receives it, but is quickly tempted by the devil, has no roots to sustain his beliefs, and quickly turns away from the gospel.When my children were small they wanted to grow pumpkins for Halloween. I went out and purchased seed, soil, and pots for them to start and tend the seeds. They were diligent about watering the plants for about a week, by this time the seeds had sprouted and there was a little pumpkin plant growing.

After a couple of days the small plants withered up and died. They were devastated that their pumpkin plant was dead. I sat them down and explained to them why they died, and that if they planted more they had to make sure they would take care of them. I would like to tell you that they rushed right out to plant new ones, but they decided it was too much trouble, and they would ask their father to buy them pumpkins for Halloween. Just like the seeds that fell on the rocky soil it was too much trouble for them to tend."Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them."The seed that fell among the thorns are the person who listens, but prefers to place material wealth before God's word."Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Let anyone with ears listen.The seed that fell on good soil is the person who not only listens to God's word, but follows his example in life, and will be blessed abundantly.The flourishing of the seed takes place in the Grace period, while the Holy Spirit survives. When no seeds fall on good soil, and no one hears the word of God (Holy Spirit) the Grace period will end and the Apocalypse will begin. The creation will then be restored.As He...
