John suggests that in the story of the sower we are offered picture of a recklessly generous God who seeks to sow life wherever. While we can read the soil types as different people, it is also us. We are a mix of soils. And that reckless God keeps on scattering that seed of life within us. In this way we are blessed to be a blessing. How then do we nurture our good soil and help that seed grow, that we might be a blessing?
