Today’s verse is from the Gospel of Mathew – Mathew 13:23
Find below the verse from two versions of the Bible.
But he that received seed into the good ground is he that hearteth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. (version KJV)
But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. (version NIV)
It’s up to you to decide if you are the good ground which brings a hundredfold yield or a lesser yield. When you hear the Word of God in reverence, believing that the Word is from God, the Creator of the Universe, the Heavens & the Earth and even your Creator, you value it. When you value it and follow the Word in truth and spirit, you honour the word.
What is follow the word. Follow the word is understanding the word, considering the word precious and decide to follow the instruction mentioned in the word. When you yield your heart, when you yield your life to the word and obey it, make the changes in your thoughts and actions you follow the word.
Note it, evaluate how you are progressing with regarding change. Do this diligently.
Become the ground that yields a 100-fold.
Be on this thought throughout the day and night!
