Good Soil: Luke 8:15

The seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.

Luke 8:15 (NIV)

How do we become noble, have a good heart, and become good soil? By reading God’s Word (the bible), keeping His Word, and obeying His Word. In Luke 8, Jesus is explaining what kind of soil we need to become to produce a good crop, much fruit. People with noble, honest, and good intentions hear God’s Word cling to it are good soil. The power, strength, compassion, and love of God flow through those who hear His Word retain it, with perseverance maintain it, and produce a fruitful crop.

Is your spiritual soil rocky, thorny, hard, impenetrable soil, or good soil?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, teach us to read, maintain, and follow Your Word. Lead us and teach us to have a noble and good heart. Help us to become good soil, and to produce much fruit. Like the lady slipper wildflower needs soil with a special fungus to grow, we need to follow God’s Word and have a good heart to produce good soil and grow spiritual fruit. Show us Your way. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

If you need prayer, I will be glad to pray for you.

  1. Amen. Beautiful post Jeanne. I’m glad that God is the gardener and that we can trust Him to till and turn that soil so that it’s prepared for good things to grow. Have a wonder-filled weekend. ☺

  3. Thank you for sharing this parable of the soils! I think it is very important for us to be rooted in good soil as we receive the word of God. This way we don’t turn away from it when things become difficult, ignore it altogether, or have it wither away when we have pleasures and anxieties in our lives. I think you succinctly capture the important points of this parable. I just wrote about this in my own post, and I tie this parable into the field of positive psychology, which is the scientific study of well-being and happiness. I think you would find the content interesting, and so feel free to check it out sometime if you have the time. I welcome and contributions/reflections you may have as well. I hope to see you there but if not, I hope you are doing well, and God bless you!
