We ARE VIABLE SEED
Jesus was on a broadcast to clear the air. He had been referred to as the Prince of Demons, an accolade he swiftly moved to disassociate from. Thus, when asked to explain the parable of the weeds, in straight forward and clear language He says the following:
Jesus answered, “The man who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man; the field is the world; the good seed is the people who belong to the Kingdom; the weeds are the people who belong to the Evil One;(Matthew 13:37-38)
The clarity we needed was the association Jesus creates between the good seed and himself ‘I am the son of man and I sow good seeds in the field’.
It is rather easy to believe the alternative narrative that we aren’t really worth much nor will we amount to anything worthwhile. We hear the world echoing our failures or disappointments as our true hallmark with no chance for greatness or the potential for growth. This is where the words of Jesus come to remind us ‘I am the son of man and I only plant good seed’.
That beloved, is what we are; viable seed that possess the potential for growth, dominion and fruitfulness.
