Jesus goes on to explain the parable of the sower.
The seed is the word of God. Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. Luke 8:11-12
Today you are invited to consider those who have heard the word of God but who have not responded. Ask God to bring the people you know to your mind for whom this is true. Pray for them that they may hear and absorb God’s word and so be saved.
May God bless you with answered prayers for those for whom you pray today.
