He (Jesus) answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
When you follow Jesus, you are the children of His Kingdom. You are the good seed being planted in this world in preparation for an eternal harvest. You carry the salt and light of Jesus in you for others to observe. All those around you witness the good seed being produced in you and through you.
You are the workmanship of a divine plan started at the foundation of the world (Eph.1:4). When you choose to make the effort to lay “good soil” within the foundation of your character, your understanding of His Word grows in you. You begin to experience the fruit of His Spirit (Mt. 13:23).
The righteousness of Christ is your insignia (Phil 1:11). The fruit of the Spirit is your unlimited treasure chest (Gal.5:22). And the leadership of Father God is your assurance and inspiration.
You are the good seed being generated by a sovereign God for a greater purpose than anything you can think of on planet earth. Your life is not an accident but a plan event. You are unique yet similar with others. Your macro purpose is the same. But your micro giftedness and placement is unique. You have been planted in a specific family, neighborhood, and community to be sprouted for the sake of others.
Do not let the enemy blind you into ignorant stupor. Allow the Sower of good seed replicate His character and attributes in you. You will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of His workmanship.
