Exodus 23-24, Matthew 13:1-30
Sometimes I feel like a seed planted almond thorns. I’m learning to trust God so I won’t be choked by worry
This might be way out of left field, but did anyone else read the parable of the sower and have it remind you of the final judgment on whether or not a person goes to heaven or hell?
That is exactly what I was thinking especially the last two verses of what we read.
I didn’t at first, but after seeing your comment and going back and re-reading, I think your right!
Not really. Unfruitful Christians will make it into heaven, but their rewards will be few. Jesus paid it all on the cross. There is nothing else anyone needs to do. If we want a joy-filled life though we will walk with Him. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
15For this people’s heart has grown dull,
and with their ears they can barely hear,
and their eyes they have closed,
lest they should see with their eyes
and hear with their ears
and understand with their heart
and turn, and I would heal them.’
Amen ! -ellie
We have seen and heard what the prophets longed for, even those who saw the glory of God at the foot of mount Sinai!
I love the parable of the sower, as it reminds us how we must sow when reading and hearing the word to truly take it in and understand it, so when we act it is in accordance to the word.
Lord, let Matthew 13:12 be true of us: “ to those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge.”
