Jesus explained the parable from the previous verses, saying He spoke in parables for those who hear . . . that is those who have spiritual discernment or understanding.
He who has ears to hear, let him hear! (Matthew 13:9)
No everyone gets it! Many come to hear of Christ in an emotional tome in their life. They make rash decisions on a whim or on emotion. It may be the right thing or popular thing to do because others decide to walk the aisle at a chapel or go for prayer at a funeral. Yet There is no follow up . . . no further study . . . no teaching or discipleship . . . no growth.
Spiritual discernment.......are we hearing?
