“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith;
if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach;”
Romans 12: 6-7
I’ve been searching for a specific photo…
I cannot find it!!!
I can see it so clearly (in my mind,) pasted there between the clear pockets of a photo album. Yet no matter how often I flip through all the many pages, of the many accumulated binders cataloging the 30+ years of our family’s lives’, the image has yet to JUMP OUT to say –
hugs n’ blessings to all those waiting for something good to grow!
The explanation of the Parable (of the Sower)
Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, that they may not believe and be saved. And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy; but these have no root, they believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature. And as for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bring forth fruit with patience.
