Jesus’ “Parable of the Sower” examines four heart conditions: 1) A shut-down heart; 2) A shallow heart; 3) A superficial heart; and 4) A sincere heart.
A shut-down heart is closed to spiritual business.
A shallow heart has no spiritual depth finder.
A superficial hearts succumbs to seductive, anti-spiritual distractions.
A sincere heart lives with openness and honesty to God and people.
