Parable of the Sower is found in Matthew 13:1-17.  A parable is a story that illustrates a moral lesson. When we are prepared to explore its meaning can we come to know what they mean.  The latter part of the chapter explains what the parable means.  We live in times of trial and tribulation and these parables can reveal a lot to us as Christians if heart and minds can soak up the God’s word. 

“Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The one who received the seed that fell on rocky places is the man who hears the word and at once receives it with joy.  But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.  The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.  But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it.  He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”

Matthew 13:18-23
