Grow in God

Jesus told a parable about a farmer who sowed plant seeds in the ground, and the story represented
how people can grow spiritually. Some seed was picked away (like people picked off by evil lies), some
seed didn't take root because it was planted in poor quality soil (like people who allow life's cares and
troubles to distract them from making it their top priority to pursue God), and some seed couldn't grow
because it got choked out by weeds (like people who allow the world's values to choke out biblical values
in their lives). Only the seed that fell on good soil grew to maturity - capable of bearing a harvest that
could reproduce itself, like spiritually mature Christians who can lead others to relationships with Jesus.
