Parable of the Sower – Subjects for general conference addresses were not appointed by mortal authority but by impressions of the Spirit. Many topics often address mortal concerns that we all share. But just as Jesus did not teach how to overcome mortal trials or the political oppression of His day, He often inspires His modern servants to talk about what we are. must be done to change our personal lives to prepare us to return to our heavenly home. On this Easter weekend, I have felt impressed to speak of the precious and timeless teachings contained in one of Jesus’ parables.
The parable of the sower is one of the few parables reported in all of the three Gospels summarizing. The story is also one of a smaller group of parables Jesus explained to His disciples. The seeds to be sown are “the religion of the kingdom” ( Matthew 13:19 ), ” the word ” ( Mark 4:14 ), or “the religion of God” ( Luke 8:11 ) —the teachings of the Master and His servants.
