How's your soil?

The seed that falls on good ground will yield a fruitful harvest. (Lk 8:8)

God has cast us (seeds) all in different directions. We are given different surroundings and opportunities (soil). It is what we do in our surroundings and with our opportunities that determines how we grow spiritually and produce fruit.

Some of us are cast in good soil and will produce fruit with little effort. These people seem to do the right thing with little effort. However, some people in the good soil (good surroundings) end up not getting watered enough. To the other extreme, some of us are cast into sandy or rough soil. It is easy to just give up and turn out no fruit.

If you are in sandy soil it is possible to be fruitful. It will take extra work, but it can be done. Doing good, going to church and praying is not BS - it is actually fertilizer for the soul. Adding good soil a little at a time and taking care of the garden will help the seeds.
