Meditation on Today's Gospel:
Jesus' parable of the sower is meant at the hearers of his word. There are many ways of accepting God's word and they create different kinds of fruit consequently. There is the biased hearer who has a shut mind. Such a person is un-teachable and blind to the things of God. Then there is the superficial hearer who fails to think things out or think them through; such a person lacks spiritual profundity. They may at first respond with an emotional passion; but when it wears off their mind wanders to amazing else. Another type of hearer is the person who has lots of interests or cares, but who lacks the aptitude to hear or understand what is truly important. Such people are forever too busy to pray or too preoccupied to study and contemplate on God's word. He or she may work so hard that they are too tired to still think of anything else but their work. Then there is the one whose mind is open. Such a person is at all times eager to listen and to learn. He or she is never too arrogant or too busy to learn. They listen in order to appreciate. God gives grace to those who hunger for his word that they may understand his will and have the strength to live according to it. Do we hunger for God's word?
