Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: (Mark 4:3)
Today's Morsel: Most Christians, when they leave home each day and head off to work, school, or to shop, do not consider that they are supposed to be going forth sowing seed. You see, you are supposed to read the word and pray so that you have seed (the word) to sow. One of the things I've learned about witnessing is that if you will listen to people talk, and not interrupt them, you can see whose heart (soil) is ripe and ready for the seed to be sown into. Are you aware that Jesus and His disciples didn't witness to everyone? Scripture tells us, "And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us" (Acts 16:14-15). Notice, Lydia's heart was ready for the seed (the word) and life was birthed in her. Harken! Don't cast your pearls before swine.
Sing: Jesus use me, oh Lord, don't refuse me, for surly there's a work that I can do. And even though it's humble, Lord help my will to crumble, though the cost be great, I'll work for You.
