"A generous heart that gives without limits"
A Christian is a person who is generous. Yet, there are many who fail to listen to the call of Jesus, to take notice of what He is saying: ‘The amount you measure out is the amount you will be given.’ Do we model our hearts after the Heart of our God who gives Himself to the end, unconditionally and without any expectations for rewards?

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.
