Hebrews 10:11-18. Psalm 109(110):1-4. Mark 4:1-20.
You are a priest for ever, in the line of Melchizedek – Psalm 109(110):1-4.
‘Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’
The image of a sower is not as familiar to us as it would have been in Jesus’ time. The message of the parable, however, is just as relevant, and just as liberating. One central theme is the importance of discernment in our own reception of God’s word. It is good for us to reflect on our own response to each challenge in our life. In that way our awareness of God’s invitations can become ever deeper.
For all of us, there are times when the seed is choked within us and times when it falls on good soil. We are dependent on God to tell us how best to prepare the ground. Father, help us to use the ears you have given us.
