The parable of the seeds is about God's Word in different scenarios. But instead of focusing on the "seed," I took a little time to think about the sower because I am one and so are you if you're a follower of Christ. Once we receive Christ as Savior, one of our jobs (and a highly important one) is to share Christ and God's Word with others everywhere, just like the sower here in Luke 8.

So take a few minutes and think about yourself as a sower, a dispenser or distributor of the message of hope found only in God's Word. What kind of sower are you? How much are you dispensing? Where are you dispensing? And finally, what does this parable reveal about what you can expect as you're out "sowing" for the Lord? Tami W.
