A Parable to Guide Us

[Of Special Interest to Young Men and Women]

One of the best-known parables of our Master is the parable of the sower recorded in Chapter 8 of Luke and in two other Gospels. Christ Jesus not only related this parable, but carefully explained it that there might be no mistaking his meaning.

"A sower went out to sow his seed," Jesus said, and then he enumerated some types of environment in which a seed might come to rest. Some seed "fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it"; some seed landed upon a rock where it withered away for lack of moisture; and some fell among thorns which choked it. But other seed, he assured his listeners, "fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold."
