Luke 8:15: God’s Word

Wednesday, August 7, 2019

Luke 8:15: But 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.

This story is familiar to all of us – seed sowed among thorns, between rocks and along pathways.  Thistles and hard places do not nurture freedom and growth; they stifle the burgeoning spirit.  Tilled, irrigated soil is the better nest for promoting mercy and many of us do not have the benefit of this kind of gift. Yet all of us have God’s forgiveness no matter our actions. Each of us is called to goodness no matter our surroundings.   All of us are loved by God no matter our circumstances.

Let us look for fertile soil in which we might grow . . . today and all days.

Let us respond to God’s call . . . with the noble and good heart that is God-given

Let us hear God’s Word . . . retain it, and persevere in it.

And let us produce with our lives a good and gracious crop that we might return to our loving God.

Select a word from the “word cloud” to the right, follow the link . . . and consider how we might respond to God’s Word and produce a good harvest.
