The parable of the Sower in Matthew 13 is is one of the most challenging messages Jesus gave us. It teaches us the importance of the Word of God, along with how our response to it has temporal and eternal consequences.
As life gets busier, and the world presents more challenges to serious Christians, how do we make sure we are the soil that receives the Word and bears much fruit for God? What are some of the things of this world that distract us from loving and serving God?
We discuss this and other topics – including the horrendous Supreme Court ruling yesterday striking down abortion restrictions in Texas. Sadly, this will also affect every state in America because to the Supreme High Priests, protecting human life is unconstitutional.
For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them. Psalm 139:16
God is not tolerant; He is patient!
The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Today, the High Priests of the Supreme Court waved their royal scepters and summarily abolished a reasonable and necessary law passed by the elected representatives of the people of Texas…
Not only do women have a right to execute their children, it turns out, but the right is so sacrosanct that they must not be forced to drive for 45 minutes to obtain one. In other words, women have a right to kill their kids conveniently. I assume it will only be a matter of time before you can order an abortion with a side of fries while you’re in the drive-thru line at Wendy’s. And that, too, will be a “right” embedded in the Constitution, according to Ruth Bader Ginsburg and friends.
…Texas should ignore the Supreme Court. The time for civil disobedience is now. On Tenth Amendment grounds, on the grounds of justice, on the grounds of human decency, on the grounds of saving lives, on the grounds of truth, of morality, of righteousness;
The law simply required that abortion clinics meet many of the same regulatory standards other medical facilities are forced to meet. If that would have the effect of closing half the clinics in the state, that says more about the clinics than it does about the law.
Besides, if leftists believe abortion mills are medical clinics, why don’t they want them to be treated that way?
