The Parable of the Sower

The Parable of the Sower – Matthew 13:1-8

That day Jesus left the house and sat down by the sea side.

Many people came to where he was. So he got into a boat and sat down. All the people stood on the land by the water.

He taught the people many things by telling them stories. He said, `Listen, a man went out to sow some seed.

As he sowed it, some of the seed fell on the road. Birds came and ate the seed.

Some seed fell on the stony ground. Not much earth covered the stones. The seed started to grow right away because it was not deep in the ground.

When the sun began to shine, it was too hot for the new plants. They died because they had no roots.

Some seed fell among the weeds. The weeds grew up and made the new plants die.

But some seed fell on good ground. The seed grew and the plants gave more seed. Some plants gave thirty seeds. Some gave sixty. And some gave a hundred.

Mark 4:1-9 The Parable of the Sower

Again he began to teach by the seaside. A great multitude was gathered to him, so that he entered into a boat in the sea, and sat down. All the multitude were on the land by the sea. He taught them many things in parables, and told them in his teaching, Listen! Behold, the farmer went out to sow, and as he sowed, some seed fell by the road, and the birds came and devoured it. Others fell on the rocky ground, where it had little soil, and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of soil. When the sun had risen, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. Others fell among the thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit. Others fell into the good ground, and yielded fruit, growing up and increasing. Some produced thirty times, some sixty times, and some one hundred times as much. He said, Whoever has ears to hear, let him hear.
