Greetings from the Senior Adult Ministry retreat in Montreat NC!
The group from Westminster is studying the parables, and this morning we discussed the parable of The Sower.
We discovered the seeming foolishness of throwing seeds in every direction- seeds land on the path, on rocky ground, in the thorns, and in the good dirt. (You can see the 4 soil types in this illustratration from the St. John’s Bible on display at the Montreat Heritage Center.)
What is the sower so extravagant with the seed? Maybe Jesus is telling us something about the way God is with his grace. That is an abundance that leads to scattering it everywhere!
As we have received, should we not also give?
