I can still picture Mum sowing grass seed over a patch of ground at home. She was very generous.
In throwing it about. Today’s parable taken from Matthew 13:1-23 gives us an image of a very generous God who sows the seed of his Word all over the place too. He wants it to take root and flourish. It is as if God wants to cover every possibility, miss nothing. Yes, we have our rocky and thorny experiences and we have our hard ground difficult to penetrate but God’s Word has a way over time of entering those difficult places and breaking them down into a rich soil. We are invited to see with our eyes, hear with our ears and understand with our heart all those things that bring life, healing and growth into our lives and into the lives of others.
