The Parable of the Sower is perhaps the clearest depiction in the entire Bible of how we need to deal with our heart so that it can become the good ground for the Lord to grow within us.

In particular, those of us who have been in the Lord for a number of years need to be careful of the “thorns” that may grow up within us to choke the word and so prevent us from bringing forth any fruit to maturity.

In the Old Testament, Lot, when he left Abraham, seems to be an example of one who did not deal with his heart in an adequate way. Thus, his story is a serious warning to us today.
