This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. Luke 8:11
When a farmer is planting a large field, he will scatter seeds everywhere on that field. The purpose is to get as much seed out so that he can get as many plants as possible, to have the greatest harvest possible.
In the same way, when a person has some great information or something to sell, he will scatter the news out in whatever means possible. He may use social media sources, news resources, ads online and in flyers, billboards, or whatever else it takes to get the information out.
Jesus had given a parable about a farmer scattering seeds. Afterwards He stated that the seeds were the word of God.
While the world is scattering seeds all the time to sell things and lifestyles, the believer must also be scattering some seeds. The seeds that the believer must scatter is God’s word.
The best way to scatter God’s word around is to use it in one’s general talking everyday. Incorporate God’s word in one’s day-to-day conversations.
Too many believers do not use God’s word daily. Often this is because they have not been in it and do not know it. They are also afraid of offending someone.
Using God’s word does not necessarily mean that one has to say ‘Thus saith the Lord in such and such a verse’ every time they speak. It is just incorporating His words, truths and teachings in one’s daily conversations.
As this is done all the time, everywhere, some will accept it and others will reject it. However, the more seed scattered broadly, the greater the chance of more people accepting Jesus as their Savior.
No one can accept Jesus, unless they hear about Him. And they cannot hear, unless someone tells them.
You have some knowledge of God’s word as a believer. Instead of holding it in or just talking about it on Sundays at church, scatter it about everywhere you go.
Take every opportunity you can to use God’s word in your conversations. Do not hold back letting others know what God’s word says about each and every situation met with.
The world desperately need to hear God’s word–the Truth. They need to hear about Jesus and what He has done for them.
Scatter the seed and allow God to do His work in growing that seed.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know God’s word in your heart; that you will speak God’s word to all you meet; and that God will use His word through you to build His kingdom.
