Listen! A farmer went out to plant his seed!
God’s a farmer? I’m sure he’s cautious about where the seed will go.
He scattered it on the road.
No! Not there, the birds will eat it, what a waste!
He scattered it on the rocks.
No! Not there, the sun will scorch it. What a waste!
He scattered it among the weeds and thorns.
No! You’re wasting seed! It will never grow there!
He scattered it on the earth.
This farmer is far too liberal in his planting!
Had he been more picky with where he cast his seed,
He wouldn’t have wasted so much.
Let those who have ears, hear the Good News.
