Isaiah 55:10-11; Psalm 65; Romans: 8:18-23; Matthew 13:1-23

The sower and the seed

Take time to read and imagine today’s parable. Picture the sower sowing seed with easy sweeps of his hand. The seed goes anywhere and everywhere, good ploughed ground and not so good, some into the soil and some on top of stones. Some seed grows really well, the rest with varying success. Yet, as Isaiah reminds us in the first reading, rain and snow come from the heavens and give growth. Well, each of us has the opportunity to grow. Where do I fit into the parable? Why?
