BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY
"But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience." Luke 8:15
One who has a good heart is like the soil that is plowed, breaking all the clods and softened in order for the rain to be able to reach the seed, without which nothing could grow and bear fruit. People with hard hearts are normally filled with bitterness, unforgiveness, unbelief and worldliness.
In order to be fruitful and multiply in God's kingdom one must cultivate his spiritual garden by pulling up any weeds or thorns, and by guarding his heart against any intrusions of bitterness or unbelief and by keeping the birds of the air from stealing the seed! We as believers are spiritual plants in the garden of God, born from above, sown in righteousness to bear fruit in the kingdom of God!
Guard your hearts with all diligence because the devil has sown tares among the wheat, sons of the wicked one, meant to look like God's people but as they are both allowed to grow together it becomes obvious who belongs to God and who belongs to the devil!
"Therefore, as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. "The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend and those who practice lawlessness. "and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. "Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!" Matthew 13:40-43
