Our podcast this week on the Parable of the Four Soils gives us a great conversation about who is the farmer.

 It is a parable with kingdom-reaching principles that can be applied to everyone.    If you ever thought that the farmer was someone else and not you guess again.  The farmer is not the preacher or the youth minister, or the evangelist it is us!

This parable has so many internal applications that Amy and I needed to break each one down and we started of course with the farmer. 

What are the 4 kinds of soils?

Christ list’s the soils as the hard soil, the rocky soil, the thorny soil, and then the good soil. Amy and I break down the farmer, and then each individual soil and how it would apply to our lives.  Better yet has there been a time when we have been each of these soils? 

What is the spiritual meaning of the parable of the four soils?

The spiritual meaning behind this parable is probably one of the most powerful spiritual explanations of how we are to grow the kingdom of Christ.  We talk about the spiritual ramifications of those soils that have caused us to become what Christ has planned for us in his kingdom.

What is the spiritual application of the four Soils?

Amy decides in this podcast that the four soils could possibly represent us at different times in our lives and that is the way that we take the podcast.  Starting with the Sower ( farmer)  and how he should be sowing the seed of Christ around the world or better yet within our own homes. 

The Parable of the four soils is found in Matthew 13:1–23, Mark 4:1–20, Luke 8:4–15.
