The seed is not the problem…

Mark 4v18v20

Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop–thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown.”

I look at the photo attached. I got this photo last summer when I travelled to Dublin, Republic of Ireland. I love those small shops. They reminded to me those old days when there were no supermarkets but just small shops: the butcher, the baker, the fisherman and so on. When we were out for shopping, we had to go to all those shops that were usually located along our neighbourhood’s street.

Today, we still have those shops – fewer than in the past but still there at some towns – as well as we can compensate our over-occupied time by visiting the closest supermarket and do the shopping in no time!

Honestly, I have no idea why I wrote all the above…(smiles…)…

The Gospel according to Mark and Chapter 4 speaks to us about the Kingdom of God and Its inhabitants. The Lord used so clear and beautiful allegories to present it to us. He used pictures that we can relate with and comprehend.

Most of us look at ourselves as the ones who heard the word, accepted it and produced hundred folds…a good harvest – as the fruits and vegetables outside that shop in Dublin.

Let’s re-examine our self and watch deep in our hearts whether the seed made roots so deep that no persecution or trouble will remove our dedication to the Lord or if that seed is still waving left and right according to the circumstances.

The seed is not the problem. The seed is the word of God and it is only blessing and joy. The problem is the soil. What kind of soil are you?

Our Lord, here we come to you, in front of your throne of grace and mercy, thankful for the beautiful kingdom you prepared for us. Lord, we pray that you help us to become stronger and your word to take deep roots in us, so deep that no wind, quake or any force can up root them, in Jesus Name we pray, amen!

Love,

Dimitra

  1. Very nice post Dimitra. All we can do is plant the seed and let God do the rest of the work. Then we can give Him all the Praise and Glory. Thanks for another inspiring post. I always read your post every day and they are very good, I just sometimes don’t have the time to comment. I need to make more time for good friends like you. God Bless and have a great day, Jeff
