Using the Parable of the Sower in Mark 4:1-20, Blake Holmes describes the Bible as God's love letter to us. It is the seed spread by the sower wherever he goes. The challenge of both the Parable and for us today is to identify the type of soil that reflects the condition of our hearts. Are we like the hard path, the rocky soil, the thorn-infested soil, or the good soil? Then we have to cultivate the soil of our hearts by removing the barriers so that we can be productive like the good soil. How can we do the things necessary to be like the productive soil this year and reap the harvest of a life that honors God?
