The Parable of the Sower

“When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one come sand snatches away what has been sown in his heart.” ~ Matthew 13:19

In regards to a post I wrote earlier, I recently (okay, it’s been almost two weeks—I haven’t had much time for blogging lately) ran across this passage in Matthew that really struck me. Christ is talking specifically about people who hear the Gospel, but don’t understand what they hear. Christ says that Satan himself “snatches away what has been sown in is heart.” How sad is that? People that don’t make a decision about Christianity based on Christ—but just never had the opportunity to understand what Christianity was all about.

Lord God, may You grant us Your words to bring Your news to those around us. Don’t let us be stumbling blocks to the Gospel. Amen.
