May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. II Peter 1: 2
Four types of soils: What kind of soil are you?
When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soilrefers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Matthew 13:19-23 New International Version (NIV).
The four types of soils represent different responses to God’s message. People respond differently because they are in different states. Some are hardened,others are shallow, others are contaminated by distracting by distracting worries, and some are receptive.
