I have noticed something very significant over the last eight years or so at the time of this writing. Simply put, people expect to reap where they have not sown. That’s like going to the bank trying to make a withdrawal when you have not made any deposits. We would say that is silly, but Christians do it all the time. They expect God to swoop down and rescue them from their dilemma when they have never taken the time to invest in their own spiritual wellbeing and to learn what God has already made available to them for that situation.
In this lesson, I am going to present to you the importance of sowing the word of God into your own heart so that when situations arise, good or bad, you will be able to act according to the word of God and with wisdom. We are going to use the parable of the sower and the seed as a launching point for this topic as well as other parables that highlight the importance of the word of God from Matthew Chapter 13.
