We've spent two Sundays tapping into the truths of this wonderful parable about how the Word is like seed landing upon our hearts. The story is crafted in such a way that the idea of hearing the Word in a way that brings results is so obviously paralleled with the way seed doesn't just remain itself when it enters the soil. It becomes something bigger that itself. Seed turns into fruit. That's obviously what Jesus was emphasizing. The Word, properly heard, doesn't remain print on paper or words in a sermon. The seed transcends itself. It carries fruit in its own nature. Its very nature is to transform.
