Good Seed

February 23, 2009

Last night I was privileged to be a part of a good discussion on the parable of the sower in Luke 8. It was a great discussion on a familiar passage.  It got me thinking about me and what kind of soil I am preparing in my life.  I must admit that this is quite humbling when I have to look closely at my life and my choices.  As much as I may desire to follow in the way of Jesus, I am often times starving my soul of the nourishment it needs. I read the Bible for my job, I teach 5th and 6th graders (previously high schoolers and jr. highers), but sometimes I do not do outside of the preparation times. Wait… a lot of times I do not do it outside of that. I hate to admit it, but I can see a direct correlation in my way of living when I am being fed and not. I tend to be too cynical, I think there is a healthy cynicism and an unhealthy cynicism, I border on the unhealthy. As a result of my cynicism I will not read the Bible in defiance of being too religious, but that creates a whole new problem.  In trying not to be too religious I have in turn starved myself of the food I need. I need a fresh start.

I want to be someone that produces a good fruit. Someone that is feeding myself healthy food. 

Do you ever struggle with preparing good soil?
