Dear Friend in the Lord,
Willingness to do God’s Will: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed the “Parable of the Sower and Seeds” to remind us of the many temptations and traps that can lure us away from God. Ponder on the parable, “Which type of soil describes our faith well? Pray for God’s Wisdom and Strength to do His Will.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
With a large crowd gathering and people from every town finding their way to him, Jesus told this parable: ‘A sower went out to sow his seed. As he sowed, some fell on the edge of the path and was trampled on; and the birds of the air ate it up. Some seed fell on rock, and when it came up it withered away, having no moisture. Some seed fell amongst thorns and the thorns grew with it and choked it. And some seed fell into rich soil and grew and produced its crop a hundredfold.’
Saying this he cried, ‘Listen, anyone who has ears to hear!’
