a hundred or sixty or thirtyfold. Matthew 13
The seed is the Word of God; it depends on rich soil to grow and flourish. Soil in Latin is humus, from which we get the word humility. Indeed, the warm, dark dirt of our humility is this rich soil, way down in the depths of our hearts, where we discover our sinfulness, our desperate need for Jesus who is Mercy. Hidden in Christ, we long to make these depths ever open to the Word who is Christ Jesus.
