Josh shares about the familiar parable from Matthew 13 about the sower who casts seed on a variety of soils and what happens to the seeds sown in those soils. We have a tendency to view this parable as the "Parable of the Soils," getting caught up in identifying which soil describes our spiritual walk. But Jesus is telling the "Parable of the Sower." He is describing the reckless way He loves. He is reminding us that the Kingdom is a seed planted within us by Him and that we cannot produce the fruit of that without Him. Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23; Galatians 3:1-3; 1 Corinthians 3:7; John 15:1-4; Colossians 3:12-17; Micah 6:8.
