Mark chapter 4

Jesus explains the story about the seeds

Verses 13-20

Jesus explained the story in Mark 4:1-9 to his *disciples. It was not a difficult story. It was easy to understand.

The seed is like Godís message. *Soil receives all the farmerís seeds. And people receive Godís message. But all the seeds do not fall in the same place. Some places are better than other places. And people are different from each other. Some people obey God if they hear his message. Other people do not obey God.

Some people do not even begin to obey God. They hear Godís message. But immediately, *Satan takes it from them.

Other people like Godís message. They start to obey it. But soon they change their minds. They decide that it is too difficult to obey God.

Other people try to obey God. But other things seem very important to them. They may think about their troubles. They may think about their money. They may think about other things. But they do not still think about Godís message. So they cannot obey him.

God sent his message for a purpose. He sent it so that people would obey him. Those people are like the good plants in Jesusí story. God will help them to do the things that he wants. Those people will not waste their lives. They will use their lives well, because they will do Godís work.

Next part: Jesus speaks about a *lamp
