I am studying the parable of the sower and the seed. I am at the beginning where it says “A sower went out to sow.” I found that truly amazing: the sower was actually going to do what he was given to do. In contrast, I came up the stairs in my house to get my little dog to carry him outside (he is blind and deaf so I must do this periodically). I saw my bed was unmade so I went to make it and saw my laptop. I thought, “I will do my Bible memorization on Scripture Typer and then get right to making my bed. I opened my browser and saw new posts in my inbox from two bloggers I follow. I went to read both of them and responded to one. I then thought, while I’m on the computer I should check out the parable of the sower and the seed on Bible Gateway. When I read the first line of the parable I laughed. Really? He actually went out to do what he intended to do? He was a sower so he went out to sow, AND miracles of miracles, we see him casting seeds in the very next line!!!!
Dear Friends Who Read here, this doing what I set out to do rarely happens to me. I wonder if I am to heed the impression these six simple words gave to me. I will pray about this, but first, I must take the dog out into the backyard!
Have a blessed weekend,
