OCTOBER 12 – UNDERSTANDING

10/12 Luke 8:11-15
“This is the meaning of the story: The seed is God’s message. 12 The seed that fell on the hard path represents those who hear the message, but then the Devil comes and steals it away and prevents them from believing and being saved. 13 The rocky soil represents those who hear the message with joy. But like young plants in such soil, their roots don’t go very deep. They believe for a while, but they wilt when the hot winds of testing blow. 14 The thorny ground represents those who hear and accept the message, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life. And so they never grow into maturity. 15 But the good soil represents honest, good-hearted people who hear God’s message, cling to it, and steadily produce a huge harvest.
UNDERSTANDING
The tragedy for mankind is that so many people in every level of society from the poorest to the wealthiest think that whatever they think is right. There is only foolishness in the minds of mankind. Around the clock they seek to control their environment and the world as they see it. God is in control. Wisdom comes from Him. Seek the Lord and His righteousness and you will have light and life for living and the Lord will freely give you wisdom in your daily walk.
