Why Share?


         I agree with this caption up to a point, regarding my blog posts.  I really don't believe that 'I' or anything I write can 'change' a person's mind.  What I can do is plant seeds into another's mind and let God cultivate it from there.  Minds are made up of different kinds of soil so whether the seeds take root or not is not up to me.
        Matthew 13;18-23  “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 their heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
      I also agree that Christians should support each other in their beliefs, so the feedback I get thru my blog comments is a strong encouragement to me. I wish I had more comments that told what the reader got from the posts.  'Christians find strength and encouragement in numbers. A believer alone is vulnerable to temptation, but when supported by several fellow Christians, becomes a much more effective witness for Christ.'
     Psalm 133;1  '' Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!''
