Focus of the week – The Parable of the Sower Matthew 13: 1 - 9
In this parable, a farmer scatters seed in four places: on a path, in rocky places, among thorns, and on good soil. The only place that the seed could grow was in the good soil. After Jesus finished telling the story about the farmer, he explained the meaning. Seeds that fall on a path and are eaten by birds represent people who hear God’s Word, but do not understand it. The ones that fall on rocky ground represent those who hear God’s message, but it doesn’t take root in them, and they abandon it when troubles come. Seeds that fall on thorns represent when the Word is choked out by worries and
wealth. Finally, the seed that falls on good soil grows, representing a person who hears the Word, understands it, and accepts it.
See the following assembly: 

Please find below a link to help us join together with our families in prayer:
