3 And He spoke many things to them in parables, saying, “Behold, the sower went out to sow; 4 and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up. 5 Others fell on the rocky places, where they did not have much soil; and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. 6 But when the sun had risen, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 Others fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them out. 8 And others fell on the good soil and yielded a crop, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty. 9 He who has ears, let him hear.”
This parable speaks of sharing the Word of God in terms of a farmer planting a crop. It’s easy to become discouraged when a crop doesn’t produce as well as we would expect. In the same way, it’s easy to become discouraged when our efforts to share God’s Word seem to go unheard. When this happens, we need to focus on the joy experienced by all Heaven when just one soul is saved (Luke 15:7) and realize that our efforts are not in vain. Keeping this in mind can enable and empower us to continue to share His Word with each opportunity that arises, clinging to the hope of sharing in salvation’s joy.
Heavenly Father, help us to maintain our focus on you as we spread your Word to the world. Let us not be discouraged but rather fill us a desire to continue on in faith. In Christ’s name we pray, amen.
The Continuing Need In Our Community.
Throughout the Findlay area, the need continues for emergency shelter for men, women, and families. Hancock County was hit by the downturn in the economy, resulting in individuals and families suffering from homelessness and hunger. As the only emergency shelter in the area able to accommodate the needs of men, women, and families, it is important that The City Mission of Findlay continues offering services to meet the current and future needs of the community.
While the economy has improved, there are still many in need of emergency housing, food and the resources necessary to gain employment and their own housing. According to a study conducted in July 2014 by Feeding America, 13.5% of the population in Hancock County doesn't always know where their next meal is coming from. Over the last 3 years the Mission has served 71,000 meals and has given out 2,616 food boxes. Read more...
