Bible Verse of The Day – 10-19-17

Matthew 13:8 (NKJV) 8 But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” 

Today we'll look at the last of the different types of seeds that Jesus taught about in the parable of the sower and the seeds. 

This last bunch of seeds fell on good ground. 

This means that when they heard the word of God, they received it and held it close to their hearts. They treasured it and did whatever it took to protect it, nurture it and make it grow. 

And, in turn, those seeds went on to bear much fruit. Some a hundredfold, some sixty and some thirty. 

Think about that. A hundredfold return on one seed. Or even sixty or thirtyfold. Those are extremely high returns! 

These hearts took the word of God seriously and not only nurtured it in their own lives, but also helped to share it with others. 

They saw it as being so important that they diligently worked to make it multiply, in their own lives and in the lives of those around them. 

Luke 8:15 (NKJV) 15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience. 

But did you notice that last word or two? With patience. 

They took their time. They gave it the proper time and attention needed to bring it to fruition. And, in return, they didn't just get a return, they saw a huge harvest. 

Patience is critical. We need to not be in such a hurry all the time. Remember that those who were in a hurry lost their faith because the cares of the world and the pursuit of riches choked it out and caused it to die. 

Treasure God's word. Cherish it. Protect it and hold it close to your heart. 

And you will reap a harvest, in your own life, and for the kingdom of God, a hundredfold, sixtyfold or thirtyfold.
