Cultivating seeds of inspiration

Little stories with big meanings. That’s how I once heard Christ Jesus’ parables described. At a time when some activities in my life were ending and I was praying about my purpose and employment, I found the “seed” parables in chapter 13 of Matthew’s Gospel to be a light on my path. 

Examining them with fresh eyes rather than through layers of interpretation I had adopted over the years gave me new insights. The first of the seed parables is the story of the sower whose seed landed in four different situations—by the wayside, on stony ground, among thorns, and in good soil  (see verses 3–23). Jesus explains that each represents how different states of thought will receive God’s message.
