Day 16: Monday // January 22
In one of Jesus’ most iconic parables, he describes four types of soil: the hard path, the rocks, the weed-infested, and the good earth. Each of us knows people who are in these four categories. Take a moment to place one or two names in each category. What are their needs? Why is the soil conditioned in that way? Pray for the seed of the gospel to fall in their hearts, and that God will have transformed their heart into fertile soil. Conclude your prayer with a desire to be the soil that produces 100 times what was sown. May the Lord use you to produce a crop that multiplies the investment made in us.
