Seeds word of god

  • No. plant a garden?


  • The story has a much deeper meaning. In Jesus‘ story, the seeds represent the Word of God

Seeds = word of god

Soil people

= plant a garden?

  • and the soil represents the people who hear the Word. Many times people hear the Word of God, but they don't understand it. They don't take it in. That is like the seed on the footpath. The evil one comes and takes away the seed that has been planted in their heart before it has the opportunity to grow in their life.

Soil = people

Rocky soil excitement fading

= plant a garden?

  • The seed that fell on rocky soil represents those who hear the word and receive it with great joy, but when the newness wears off and the excitement fades, they drift away because they don't have deep roots.

Rocky soil = excitement fading

Weeds worries

= plant a garden?

  • The seed that fell among the weeds represents people who hear God's word and believe what it says, but soon the message is crowded out by the worries of life and the desire to get more stuff. If seed is planted in a bunch of weeds, the weeds will soon take over!

Weeds = worries

Good soil a true believer

= plant a garden?

  • A person who hears God's word, tries to understand what it says and put it into practice in their daily life is like good soil. In good soil, the seed takes root and grows and produces a plentiful harvest. That is the kind of soil that Jesus wants us to be.

Good soil = a true believer
