In Mark 4:2-9, Jesus gives us crystal clear perspective on being a seed planter — i.e., sharing our faith. In this simple parable, we are the farmer:
2He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: 3"Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. 4As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. 5Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 6But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. 7Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. 8Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.” 9Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” (New International Version)
In Jesus' parable, the farmer's responsibility was not to make the crop grow.
The responsibility was to scatter the seeds
