Mark 4:14

Mark 4: 14
The sower sows the word.

This verse is in reference to the parable of the sower.  Jesus is explaining the meaning of this parable to the apostles.  

The sower sows the word.

The Word of The Lord.

How does this relate to us?

The sower sows the word.

We receive the word.  The word is presented to us.  Maybe in mass on Sunday, maybe through a verse of a song, maybe from our bible, maybe from a friend or even from a billboard on the highway.  We are presented with the word but it is what happens after this that is important.  What do we do with the word?  Does it just bounce off us, does it simply sit inside us or does it overwhelm us and spread out to all we come in contact with?

And some seed fell on rich soil and produced fruit.  It came us and grew and yielded thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.
Mark 4:8

Dear Lord, Help me to be like the rich soil and produce much fruit from your word.
