We must prepare our hearts so Jesus’ teachings can grow within us!
Gospel Reflection for the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
In today’s gospel, we hear the Parable of the Sower. Jesus tells the people about the seeds that fell on hard ground, seeds that fell on rocky ground, seeds that fell into thorns, and seeds that fell into good soil. The seeds remind us of Jesus’ teaching. The different places the seeds fall, remind us of our hearts.
This parable reminds us that if we do not turn to Jesus, or if we love anything more than we love Him, He cannot find a home inside of our hearts. We have to love Jesus with our whole heart and obey His teachings, then He can live and act in us.
