Sunday Musings - The Parable of the Sower

I've always thought of the lessons in the parable of the sower as being for those who are hearing the Word for the first time. However, a few months ago, I participated in a mini-course hosted by Florence Achama Ukpabi, and she shared how there are lessons in that parable for all of us at every stage in our faith walk.

While those hearing the Word for the first time can have their belief blocked by the lies of the enemy, troubles and persecution, the worries and cares of life, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires of the flesh, we too can succumb to disbelief due to these same blockers.

The same things that block others from believing in Christ can cause us to question and not live out the truths that we know. While we may not question the truth of our salvation, we may have trouble believing or hearing the Lord's direction in other areas of our lives. We must be aware of this so that we do not allow these things to block our beliefs and our ability to live the abundant life that God has for us!
