Kitchen Table Devotions
And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.”
The heart that hears is the heart that honors what it hears. This isn’t about just listening, it’s about loving; it’s about embracing the word of God for my life in my heart. The word will only live in a submissive heart that honors that word. Our lives look like what our hearts love, and if we love the word of God we will live in the wealth of God. God tells us in Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11) We will find the plans of God where there is a passion for God.
Does your fruit look like His seed? What does it mean to love His word?
