Be Encouraged By Your Efforts

In the parable of the 4 soils(Matthew 13) Jesus is encouraging spiritual “sowers”

meaning those who teach , preach and seek to lead others to the Lord to not be invested in the results

The seed (the word of God) is good seed however the “ground” depends on the readiness of the person receiving it.

There are 4 responses because there are different stages of “readiness”. Some are hardened. Others are shallow. Others are distracted. And then there are those who are receptive

So if you have been “sowing” into your relationships , business , friends, or a situation

BE MORE ENCOURAGED BY YOUR EFFORT & resist the temptation to get discouraged by the results or response.

This has been a tough lesson for me. Sometimes I’ve wanted more for others than they’ve wanted for themselves but we must release them to the consequences of their failure to respond to the “seed”
