Lesson points:

Parables have 2 meanings - one is earthly and simple to understand - the other has a Heavenly meaning that requires some thought. Jesus often used illustrations from every day life to bring out a spiritual truth. A large crowd was listening to the Lord Jesus as He gave them the story of the sower. Even the teaching of our Lord received a mix response - some listened and believed, others were impressed but didn’t take it onboard, others disregarded it immediately. (Spiritual application: The Bible is God’s Word - we should read it, believe it and act on it!). Mentioned in this parable are 4 kinds of outcomes, representing 4 types of hearers. The job of the sower was simply to scatter the seed. In the parable, he represented a preacher spreading the Word of God. The first batch of seed Jesus mentioned landed on the pathway - it was quickly trodden on and eaten by birds as it took no root in the ground. This seed represented those who heard but were unresponsive and Satan quickly took away the Word from them. The second batch landed among the rocks and started to grow, but due to lack of moisture quickly withered away. This seed represented those who seemed to have believed, but when persecuted quickly fell away as their roots were not truly planted. The third batch landed among thorns that choked the seed as soon as it grew. This seed represented those who again appeared to believe but were choked with other concerns and dangers around, riches, lusts, cares of the world - which took priority over the gospel. The last batch landed on good ground, grew strongly and bore fruit, some as much as a hundredfold. This seed represented those who were TRULY saved as the gospel took heart, remained and bore fruit to prove it. (Spiritual application: When teaching the Bible, our responsibility is to ‘sow the seed’, the responsibility to respond is with the hearer alone.)
