Seeds of Grace, and How We Receive Them

Seeds of Grace - man sowing seeds
Source: Word on Fire
The parable of the sower is part of a collection of stories told by Jesus that form (at least structurally) the centerpiece of St. Matthew’s Gospel. Together they address the central theme of the Matthean Gospel: the kingdom of heaven. For if we want to enter God’s kingdom, we must allow our souls to become receptive, fertile grounds for the seeds of divine grace.

Lessons in Evangelization from the Parables

Source: Word on Fire
In Matthew’s Gospel, we hear that “Jesus told the crowds all these things in parables; without a parable he told them nothing” (Matt. 13:34). St. Mark tells us that Jesus “began to teach them many things in parables” (Mark 4:2) and that Jesus told the disciples, “To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside, everything comes in parables” (4:11). The parables themselves are so famous and familiar that some of them, like the “good Samaritan,” have even made their way into common usage, detached from their original context. In fact, the very idea of a parable as part of our Lord’s teaching is so familiar that we may overlook them, but I would venture to suggest that we could learn some important lessons about evangelization from the nature of a parable.
