《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” (Mat 13:23)
Meditation one: The seeds are always God’s Word, why is there a great difference in crops? The key is what type of soil is in a person’s heart? Is it hard soil or shallow soil or soil among thorns? Or is it good soil? It all depends on how responsive you are to the Word of God. For example, today, after reading the Bible, whether you understand abundantly or not depends on the response from your heart.
Meditation two: What is the secret of bearing good fruit? The secret is, after reading the word of God or listening to the truth of the Lord, one is willing to bear a noble and good heart, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop (Luk 8:15). One who, after listening to the Word, is willing to do what the Word says will bear fruit in one’s life.
Prayer: God heavenly Father, I thank You for Your words. As soon as Your words are unraveled, they glow. You said, “Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart!” (Psa 119: 2). Please help me, and I am willing to walk with You by reading the Bible daily. Not only read but also live out Your words. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
