Thanks again for all the efforts that went into making yesterday a great day!

Matthew 13:1-9 NIV
[1] That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. [2] Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. [3] Then he told them many things in parables, saying: “A farmer went out to sow his seed. [4] As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. [5] Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. [6] But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. [7] Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. [8] Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. [9] Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

The soil was prepared, the good seed was sown – now for the exciting bit! Will it grow and bear a harvest? Following our “Shine” event let’s pray that God blesses the seed and that we see changed lives as a result! There is quite a lot of work involved in young plants – weeding, watering, scaring away the birds etc. and we may find the same with Gods seed!

Lord, let us welcome and nurture your word in our lives and our life together.
