Multiplier Effect

Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown.

In God’s physical creation we observe the inherent multiplier effect in seedtime and harvest. One simple seed is sown into the ground and multiples of that one seed grow into a bountiful harvest!

This is how it works in the spiritual dimension of life also.

Here the Teacher says so. Thirty, sixty or even a hundred times!

The miraculous power of the Jesus’ Words should not surprise us. He said - Let there be light and there was light! He spoke and worlds came into existence.

And when we hear the Teacher’s words and accept them, those seeds germinate in our hearts to produce the abundant fruit of God’s character in our lives.

This is the power of internalizing the Word of God! And why it is vital to become a serious student of the Teacher.

This is how our lives prosper with a plentiful yield of the fruit of the Spirit – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

And this is how the student becomes more and more like the Teacher!

  1. How many times have we read this parable?
    How many times discussed the types of soil?
    How many times - recorded in 3 of the gospels.

    Yet every time we read it something different impresses me. This time, I can't get past verse 10.

    When he was alone, the twelve and the others around him asked him about the parable. He told them, "... (Mark 4:10-11a)

    How awesome would it have been to sit at the feet of jesus!?!?!? To ask Him questions, to glean from his wisdom?

    Thanks to the Lord for His word, recorded, preserved, so that we, too, can sit at the feet of Jesus.
