Hello everybody!



This is the first time I appear here to bring you a comparison from the Gospel according to Luke that, in many ways, reflects our own everyday struggle.



The Gospel According to Luke



8:4 And when many people were gathered together, and came to him from town after town, he spoke in a parable:

8:5 A sower went out to sow his seeds: and as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trodden down, and the birds of the air devoured it.

8:6 And some fell upon the rock; and as soon as it had sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

8:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.

8:8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bore a crop a hundred times as great. And when he said these things, he called out, He who has ears to hear, let him hear.



(1) Are you a good sower?

(2) Have you chosen the righ ground to sow the seeds of your knowledge?

(3)Have you had in return, the crop you hoped to?



Have nice weekend, all of you.
