DAILY DEVOTIONS: 'The Condition of the Soil'

'The Condition of the Soil'
Jesus said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? Then how will you understand any of the parables? The sower sows the word."
- Mark 4:13-14
A friend recently attended a Catholic women's conference. The keynote speaker touched her soul in some mighty uncomfortable places, hitting so close to home that she could hear the evil one whispering to her that she was unworthy of the message. She crossed her arms in an attempt to ward him off and keep her attention where she knew it belonged.

Later, someone told her that her body language had distracted the speaker and that she should have at least looked like she was listening. Try as she might to explain and apologize, no one would believe her.

That's the thing about sharing the Good News. What appears to us to be rocky, inhospitable soil actually may be rich and ripe, or vice versa. The condition of the soil isn't for us to judge. Our job is to sow in his name and let the Lord help it take root.
Jesus, open my heart and soul to your wisdom.
