When a large crowd was coming together, and those from the various cities were journeying to Him, He spoke by way of a parable: (Luke 8:4)

"The sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell beside the road, and it was trampled under foot and the birds of the air ate it up. (Luke 8:5)

"Other seed fell on rocky soil, and as soon as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. (Luke 8:6)

"Other seed fell among the thorns; and the thorns grew up with it and choked it out. (Luke 8:7)

"Other seed fell into the good soil, and grew up, and produced a crop a hundred times as great." As He said these things, He would call out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." (Luke 8:8)
