The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Parable of the Sower Explained

Reflection on the Gospel of Friday In The Sixteenth Week In Ordinary Time

Matthew 13:18-23

 

The parable of the Sower as we commonly know is also covered by the other two evangelists  in Mk 4 : 1-9 and Lk 8: 4-8, 11-15 .  The Sower here is our Lord, the seeds – the Word of God and ‘we’ represent the soil.   

We have heard this parable many times in Church but each time,  we can probably identify ourselves  with one of the soils.  The influences and circumstances at different moments in our lives make us the path, rocky ground, the thorns, while we strive to become the good soil. Our continuous endeavour is to straighten our path,   crush the rocks , take out the thorns and improve the quality of our lives, our minds and become that fertile soil for the Word of God to take root, and grow and bear fruit.  

The beauty is that our Lord patiently watches us and nurtures us throughout this process. Like a good farmer, he works hard to improve the soil, gets the seeds for every season and watches his crop grow to yield a rich harvest. 

Let us reflect on our lives and allow the Word of God to penetrate our heart, take root and bear fruit.
