I have thought a lot about this parable and his talk.
What kind of soil do I have around my heart? Has my soil become hard like the Wyoming clay in my back yard? I hope not. The only thing that grows here is… well, weeds. Unless someone puts a whole lot of effort into it. I’m talking persistence, sweat, tears, and knowledge. It takes hard work to get anything to grow here.
So I should remember that my testimony needs hard work and constant nourishment if I want it to thrive and grow.
