The parable of the sower invites us to hear God’s Word and respond to the Gospel. We can reject the good news, or get stuck in our distractions, or we can allow Scripture to impact us. The important thing to understand is that God does the work. Soil doesn’t have to work necessarily, in order to produce roots and plants that grow. In the same way, letting the Bible bless our lives is not about us, but about letting the Word influence our lives. We want to let our hearts be like the “good soil” which can produce abundant “crops” of faith and “fruit” for others.

A message from Christianity Cove:
Bible Lessons for Kids
Often God’s voice is not loud. It’s described as “a still, small voice.” When you want God’s help with a decision, you have to listen carefully. There are often lots of things to distract us. Let’s say we have three snacks and our friend has none, and we have to decide whether we’re going to share, when we’d love to eat the whole thing.
Loud things that prevent us from hearing God’s voice sometimes include our own selfish desires.
Other loud things can be the devil, who loves to make us think that being a Christian is no fun at all.
To hear the still, small voice of the Lord, you have to listen through all of that sometimes and “watch” carefully, which means to watch with your heart.
Sometimes our desires can be very loud, and the voices of darkness can be very loud. But if you look, listen and believe that what you’ve heard is right, God is always there for you.
