Hebrews 10:11-18, Mark 4:1-20
"What type of soil do I desire to be?"
This parable speaks of the freedom that God gives to us. He sows and gives us the freedom to choose the kind of soil we want to be: the edge of the path, the rocky ground, the thorns or the rich soil. Jesus said in the Gospel of Matthew 11: 6: ‘Happy the person who does not lose faith in me.’ In choosing to become like the good soil, we are working to keep our faith in Jesus and allowing His Word to grow and take root in our lives.

"A new family"
This is the Family of God that goes beyond blood ties and human relationships. All those who seek to do God’s will are Jesus’ brother, sister and mother. As Christians, we are called to love others, especially our family members. However, there are some instances when our loved ones prevent us from growing closer to God and doing His will. We must choose our relationship with God as our top priority.
Today, let us pray that we may always seek to do God’s will and find joy in belonging to God’s Family.
