Scripture Lesson to review:

The Four Soils (Matthew 13:1-23; Mark 4:1-20; Luke 8:1-15)

S.E.E.D. = Soil Extract Entanglements of Destruction

Soil Matthew 13 Good SoilIn order for us to be fruitful, we must persist in our efforts to watch what we allow to become deposited into our environment.  What messages we absorb is what impacts our chance for healthy, productive, life – that life more abundant.  If we surround ours life with negative anti-scripture thoughts, ways, behaviors then that is what we will produce.  If we extinguish all types of negative, immoral, anti-Bible precepts, and false words out of our life then we can forego becoming entangled by deceptions, destructions, and detriments.  These types of situations will choke out all life and potential from our purpose, dreams, and destinies.  We have to review and answer vital questions that once answered will steer us into a crossroad = life versus death.

What ground do you desire to walk on in your life’s journey?

Do you want a S.E.E.D. that produces God’s fruit of eternal life?

What kind of soil is your seed being planted?

Are we growing in life or are we choking to death?

Read the following message that offers insight on the word of God as the seed that gives life when planted in good soil:

How to Live the Bible — Good Seed, Good Soil

So, as we meditate on having a S.E.E.D. that comes into full fruition; let us concentrate on God’s message and parable that explains this concept:

Mark 4:8
Berean Study Bible
Still other seed fell on good soil, where it sprouted, grew up, and produced a crop–one bearing thirtyfold, another sixtyfold, and another a hundredfold.”
Luke 8:15
Berean Study Bible
But the seeds on good soil are those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, cling to it, and by persevering produce a crop.
Matthew 13:8
Berean Study Bible
Still other seeds fell on good soil and produced a crop–a hundredfold, sixtyfold, or thirtyfold.

Dig deeper into the word of God to become equipped with tools that help you cultivate your S.E.E.D. so that in your soil you actively extract (excavate) all entanglements that if unchecked will choke out growth by detrimental, destructive, deadly precepts (principles).

Don’t allow your dreams and destiny to become dashed!

Soil the four types the-four-soils-600x400What kind of ground is your S.E.E.D. being planted into – is it good, thorny, rocky, beside the side of the ground?  Be aware of your environment to ensure that your seed is planted properly, nurtured, and grows into the full fruit that it is destined to become so that you will have a life that thrives instead of dies unfulfilled.

Plant your soul into soil that is good ground.  Diligently tend to your field and allow a harvest that yields in its proper time and season a full crop.  Let a 100% – fold blessing be showed in, through, and out of your life.
