Note: This series is written as a first-person narrative in order to present Jesus in the context he walked with the unknown disciple that narrates presenting my thoughts and sparking more thoughts with his questions. Enjoy!
Jesus looked at us, smiled, and said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground,” while mimicking throwing seed on the ground. He gestured at the sky, “Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how.”
Kneeling to cup a handful of dirt and let it trickle from between his fingers, “All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.” He made a slashing movement with his hand.
“As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”
This is tying into the four types of soil. I just know it. The path, the rocky and thin dirt, the soil covered with thorns and the good dirt. Spiritual growth?
