Mark 4:8 - "And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."
I remember the dad of an eighteen months old child being rightly excited to tell me how he and his wife had given their daughter a cracker. After a moment, this sweet little one put down the cracker and held out both hands in a way that plainly said, "Let's pray." Wow!
Friends, God is eager to see the seed of His word "growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold" as is recorded in today's verse from Mark 4:8.
Spread the seed of God's word, especially to those in your family, but also to others in your day. God is eager to bless and amaze all who do!
"The gospel is the story of Jesus [what God's only Son has done for us that we can't do for ourselves], spoken as a promise." - Robert Jenson
