The Sower cast abundant seed
Around Him everywhere.
But some seed never had a chance:
Birds snatched it in the air.
And some seed fell on stony ground
And sprang to life so quick!
But when the sun shone hot and dry,
It shrank up like a stick.
Some sprouted and grew big and tall,
But then got choked by weeds.
It couldn’t seem to bear good fruit,
But struggled for its needs.
But then, at last, some of the seed
Found home in fertile soil.
It brought forth fruit abundantly
Without the need for toil.
So make sure that your heart is plowed,
And seed finds fertile ground
To let the Word take root and grow
And bear fruit all around.

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
