THE PARABOLE OF THE SOWER – PART 2 – THE ROCKS

“Some (seed) fell in rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root.” (Matthew 13:5-6). Jesus goes on to explain this further in verses 20-21, “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. 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.” Does this scenario describe your experience with Christianity? You heard the Word, accepted it with joy, but did not go any further. You did not let it sink into your being. You did not explore it further by reading more of the Bible. Then some trial came into your life. Your faith was not imbedded in you to help you get through the rough time and what little connection you had with the Word drifted away. Maybe it’s time to try again. This time invest yourself. Attend a church, talk with other Christians, study the Bible. Don’t let your faith be like the rocky soil where the seed withers away.
