Sunday quote

(this is just a test on Technorati tags.. =>)

Sunday we had Bible Sunday and we read from Luke 8;
The parable about the sower:


A sower I know :) Posted by Hello
“A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds of the air ate it up. Some fell on rock, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.”

When he said this, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
(Luke 8:5-8)


Jesus explained the parable for the diciples: the Bible was Gods seed and this is what he said about the good soil; the kind of "soil" he all want us to be:

....the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.

(Luke 8:15)

Oh that is a really great parable! Of course, they all are! But that one is just so very simple, easy to understand.
A great picture, too! ;-)
