But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away... These likewise are the ones sown on stony ground who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with gladness; and they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution arises for the word's sake, immediately they stumble.
How hot is it where you live? (v 16-17)
