Genesis39:1-41:16;  Matthew 12:46-13:23;  Psalm 17:1-15;  Proverbs 3:33-35

“Listen then to what the parable of the sower means:  When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart.  This is the seed sown along the path.  The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy.  but since he has no root, he lasts only a short time.  When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.  The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.  But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it.  He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”  Matthew 13:18-23

Lord God, bless the hearing of your Word today.  May seeds of faith be received on soil ready to receive it through repentance and acceptance of Your Grace through Jesus Christ, our Lord.  We thank you for your life giving Word!  In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
