The Parable of the Sower is one of those interesting places where we have a parable as well as Jesus interpretation of the parable in the text.  The parable naturally invites us to introspection.  If we are honest, as we examine the state of our own hearts we often find a variety of soils from rich loam to hardened clay.  Attending to the condition of our hearts is not merely a pious exercise for inward holiness, but a path to create generous, sustainable communities that produce sustenance for our neighbors.  Rather than living in the fear of scarcity, Matthew 13, invites us to see the love of a generous God who longs for all of his children to live in communities where there is enough.
