Day 15: 350 days left…97 books to go!

Genesis 42 & 43  Joseph's brothers go to Egypt
  • Joseph is re-united with his youngest brother Benjamin & the prophecies in his dreams from when he was younger come true...
Matthew 13: 1-23  The Parable of the Sower

  • The Word of God is "sown" on various types of soil...I've often questioned I am an example of the rocky places..."Some fell on rocky places where it did not have much soil.  It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallw.  But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root."  Verse 5 & 6  
  • "The knowledge of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.  Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance.  Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him....Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand."  Verses 11-13
  • Explanation of the Parable to the disciples..."The one who received the seed that fell on the rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy.  But since he had no root, he lasts only a short time.  When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.  The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but he worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.  But the one who received the seed that fell on the good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it."  Verses 20-23
    • Oh, to be good not let my faith fall away when troubles or worries come to hear the word & understand it & produce a good crop with it.....
