Parable of the sower (part 1) - sow your seed well.

Rev. Tetteh-Annor Larbi | April 26, 2023 | Matthew 13:1-9


Still, other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop - a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Matthew 13:8 (NIV)


The passage of scripture that we are looking at today is referred to as the Parable of the Sower, one of the many that Jesus used to communicate Kingdom mysteries to his followers. Many times, when we read this parable, we are most likely to think about the different kinds of soil or grounds on which the seeds feel which were sowed by the Sower and rightly so.

As we look at the parable today, I would like to focus on the Sower and how he sowed his seed. As believers we are all expected to be seed Sowers, that is, with the understanding that the seed is the word of God which every believer is expected to have and share with others. We should also view the seed as a kingdom resource that God has entrusted us and expects us to use wisely and efficiently to maximize productivity and yield. It is said that there is always a scarcity of resources and therefore must be managed properly to get the most out of it. This is exactly what any business enterprise desires to do to maximize productivity likewise God’s Kingdom business.

From our text, we realize that the Sower scattered his seed and they fell on four different grounds but only one of these grounds yielded the desired results. This presumes that all the other seeds that fell on unyielding grounds went wasted. Can you imagine the harvest if those other seeds also fell on the good ground? It would have been a bumper harvest. But unfortunately, only a quarter of the resources he had become productive and yielded crops.


God has entrusted everyone with seed; it could be a gift you have; it could be some resource or even an ability He gave you. How well are you sowing that seed into growing His Kingdom? How well are you being productive with the use of the seed He has given you? It requires one to be very intentional about how we sow our seeds and very purposeful about what results we intend to obtain from the ground in which we sow our seeds. Remember the harvest is always more than the seed rightly sowed.


Heavenly Father, thank you for the seeds you have given me. Help me to know how and where to sow them for a fruitful yield in the expansion of your Kingdom. For your dear Name’s sake, Amen.
