“It is about the kingdom of heaven.
When someone hears the story of the Kingdom and cannot
understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away
whatever goodness and holiness had been sown in the heart.
This is like the seeds sown beside the road.”
-Matthew 13:19 The Message
A Time to Think… “Don’t build your spiritual life on a church in and of itself. Don’t build your spiritual life on another person or on a pastor or spiritual leader, because people will let you down. Instead, build your life on Christ. He will sustain you and be there for you.”―Greg Laurie, Pastor, Harvest Ministries & Author
A Time to Act… It would do us all well if we started our day with the first thoughts and the first footsteps being in line with our faith in the Lord. Then the “seeds” we so throughout the day will be laced with the love and grace of God, which will grow and spread out to others.
A Time to Pray… O Lord, help me today to sow the seeds of grace and love in all that I think, say, and do. So many people are hurting and wondering if there is hope, and I know there is but sometimes I’m just quiet. Open my mouth to speak your praise, and let my words be uplifting and filled with hope to share with everyone. I ask this in your holy name, AMEN.
