Jesus went outside in a boat in a lake. People crowded around the beach watching him. He told them, "A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed , some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop-a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. He who has ears, let him hear." People were confused and the disciples asked him why he spoke to people in parables. So Jesus explained what he was trying to say. The first type of seed is like a person who hears the message but does not understand it. The second type of seed is like a man who hears the message and understands it but only lasts a short time since he has no root. The third type of seed is like the man who hears the message but worries because of other things in life. Lastly, the fourth type of seed is like the man who hears the message and understands it.
The people learned that it was not their job to judge whether to listen to God or not.
I learned in my life that I should always listen to god no matter what so I can have faith and so I can grow strong.
