Contemplation on the Parable of the Sower (Matt 13, Mark 4, Luke 8)
The good ground remains…
The faith of the first was removed before it could take root
The faith of the second was thrown away in difficult circumstances
The faith of the third died a slow death as other things became more important
The faith of the good ground remained by the nature of faith, multiplied itself.
My endnote is there is no fatalism here, if you feel your faith has waned, talk to Jesus and re-awaken your love for Him. He’ll take you back in an instant
