#612: Sermon Haiku #45: Matthew 13:1-23

Bob Earle spoke the sermon this week,
taking as his text the Parable of the Sower.
It's all about soil
Seed's growth depends on the earth
rich loam or packed path?
Listen, hearing's not enough
Hard hearts won't grow anything
Roots can't penetrate

Looking to Jesus
Miracles and sacrifice--
Crowded out by weeds

Holy Spirit drives
Connection with himself
roots reaching deeper

Pure Godward focus
Joyful multiplication
Bountiful harvest


What kind of soil am I?
