"When God's Word is faithfully taught,
it falls on four kinds of ground.
What kind of ground are you?"
The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the
seaside. And great multitudes were gathered together unto
him, so that he went into a boat, and sat; and the whole
multitude stood on the shore. And he spoke many things
unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth
to sow; and when he sowed, some of the seeds fell by the
wayside, and the fowls came and devoured them. Some fell
upon stony places, where they had not much earth; and
forthwith they sprang up, because they had no deepness of
earth. And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and
because they had no root, they withered away. And some
fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up, and choked
them. But other seeds fell into good ground, and brought
forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some
thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.…Hear,
therefore, the parable of the sower. When any one heareth
the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then
cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was
sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the wayside.
But he that received the seed in stony places, the same
is he that heareth the word, and immediately with joy receiveth
it; yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for
a while; for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because
of the word, immediately he is offended. He also that received
seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the
care of this age, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the
word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received
seed in the good ground is he that heareth the word, and
understandeth it, who also beareth fruit, and bringeth
forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
(Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23)
