Title: The sower

Text verse: Luke 8: 5

A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it.

Bible reading: Luke 8: 4–8


Jesus encourages His followers to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom of God as He did, in other words, to sow the seed among all human beings.


  • The parable describes how the kingdom of God has come into the world and the various conditions it encounters.
  • In the image of the fourfold field, Jesus illustrates how different human beings deal with God and His word, and the consequences their response entails.
  • In the image of the sower, Jesus motivates His disciples to work for the gospel in patience and confidence.
