While this Parable may be one of the well known Bible stories, I am just not so keen about it. I don’t know why it happened that the said page was the first to open up but I felt there was a purpose, probably it was a challenge posed to me by God on … Continue reading Be Good “Soils”: The Challenge of the “Sower”
