    4. Good

  5. Not Take The Blame For Those Who Will Not Hear.

    1. Our job is to sow the seed.

    2. We are not responsible for the soil into which that seed may fall.

    3. Our job is to sow, theirs is to hear. We must not blame ourselves if the majority refuse to listen. Again, we have been told that only one soil is best for the desired results.

    4. Let us be more concerned with the content of the message, and less with the method of deliver. For it is the Gospel of Christ that is the power of God unto salvation. Romans 1:16

CONCLUSION:

As Sowers Let Us remember:

  1. Go out and sow

  2. Sow the Seed (the Word of God)

  3. Prepare the soil as best we may

  4. Be aware of the different kinds of soil

  5. Not blame ourselves for those who will not hear. As this parable teaches, many, if not most, will not hear.

And as we go out and abundantly sow let us constantly ask ourselves this sobering question “what kind of soil is my heart?"
