Our Podcast series of the Parable of the Four Soils has been a sobering look at us  (Christians )as the soils!  Amy and discuss how we personally have, at times been that selfish person, choked out by the seductiveness of the world in the thorny soil.

The Parable of the Sower (sometimes called the Parable of the Soils) is a parable of Jesus found in Matthew 13:1–23, Mark 4:1–20, Luke 8:4–15.

What is the Spiritual meaning behind the Thorny Soil?

The third soil mentioned in the Parable is the soil wrapped full of thorns.

What happens when we realize that we been caught up in our own selfish desires of the world.   The conversation between Amy and me about how we become selfish and unfruitful has been a strong reminder of what the kingdom of heaven should look like. 

What is the spiritual meaning behind the  Parable of the Four Soils?

  Amy and I discuss the spiritual meaning behind each soil starting with Podcast # 138 of our series on the Parable of the Four Soils.   

We also look at the words of Christ as he relays the kingdom principles behind being stuck in the thorns. 

Amy takes us further into a discussion on what it looks like to be unfruitful. 

Unfruitful Soil
Hear the word but do nothing with it. 
Know the word but don’t accept what it says
Teach the word but not living it out.
All this leads to indifference


What can we do to keep us out of the world and into the world?  This podcast has become a reminder to both Amy and me of how we can get caught in that trap. 


Listen now to our podcast and determine whether or not your spiritual life has become stuck in the thorns.
