Stony Places

Today, Pastor Tom continues his sermon series "Preparing the Ground", with the message "Stony Places" (Matthew 13:1-4a, 5-6, 18, 20-21). For those of us who have either farmed or put out a vegetable garden, we know what it's like to be going along and plowing and cultivating, then all of the sudden you hit a big rock and the plow or tiller comes bouncing up out of the ground! There's a little bit of soil on the surface, but underneath was a huge rock. Then, when you lay off your rows you see that the ground may be too shallow for the sprout to ever have much root to it. Stony ground is synonymous with a stony heart and Jesus said that if you get up and get out of the house and speak many things, you will eventually be speaking to "Stony Places". (This message was recorded at First Baptist Church, Thomasville, NC.)
