Active Rest is Persistent Sowing
What will you do this week to sow the seed of the Word of God?
Jesus is teaching and preaching in the villages around Galilee. His disciples and numerous women are with him in support of his ministry. Jesus tells about a farmer sowing his seed in the field. Jesus uses the image to talk about how the word of God enters and then takes root in people’s lives. It's clear to see that not all who hear God’s word embrace Jesus’ teachings and follow him. Jesus’ parable invites us to have a persistent posture as we tell others about Jesus. Active rest invites us to persistent sowing.
Questions to ponder:
-How did you rest in the month of December?
-Which kind of soil represents your life?
-Talk about how we can share God’s word. By actions, with words, with our attitudes....how else?
