In Jesus’ teaching of the Parable of the Sower, one verse catches my attention. It’s an easy verse to memorize but it speaks so much to the expectation Jesus has of every faithful follower. In Mark 4:14 we read, “The sower sows the word” (NKJV)… As Jesus explains it, that means in difficult places around the world… in hard places of every day life… in busy places where distractions rule… as well as on good ground. No place is ruled out. And we don’t get to pick where we sow the word.
