Good Ground

In our Bible verses, Jesus told a story about a farmer who planted some seeds. The seeds fell on four different kinds of ground — by the road, on rocky ground, among thorny weeds and on good ground.

The seed in this story represents God’s Word. The different kinds of ground are different kinds of people. The seed that fell on the good ground “began to grow, and it made grain. Some plants made 30 times more grain, some 60 times more, and some 100 times more” (verse 8b). This means that those people heard God’s message, accepted it and grew.

This teaches us that we need to accept God’s message and apply it to our lives. Then we will produce good things for God’s kingdom like love, kindness, faithfulness, patience and self-control. As we continue to grow spiritually, we will be able to share about God’s love with other people.

Be like the good ground today!
