Parable of the Sower

The Parable of the sower for kids  
Mathew 13 v 1-9 and 18-23

This is a well known story Jesus told to his followers.  Have a listen to the story
Which of the seeds do you think you are?  If you want to change to be like the seeds which fell on good ground ask an adult to pray with you.

The Parable of the Sower for youth
Mathew 13 v 1-9 and 18-23

Watch the following animation.
What do you think it means?
The seed is Gods word.  The example of shallow soil is like the devil respresented by the birds.  This gets forgotton straight away.  Where the soil is shallow and the plants soon die is where there is no depth to somones faith which soon gets lost.  Where the weeds grow up around the plant is where worries and riches get in the way of faith.  The seed that fell on good ground and multiplied 100 times is like Gods word growing in someones heart and ripening into a mature and deep faith.
Which of these do you think is you?  Maybe you can chat this through with someone.  If you feel ready ask someone to pray with you that your faith will mature as you go deeper into God.

The parable of the sower for adults
 Mathew 13 v 1-9 and 18-23

Which do you think is you? Talk to someone about this.  Perhaps you would like to pray this through with someone for a deep and wise faith to grow in you?
