Luke 8:15

As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.

When Jesus talks about a honest and good heart, I don't think he is talking about perfection, but wholeheartedness and sincerity. The Lord has much more to teach and instill within our hearts, in the days to come, and to the best of our ability, we are depending upon the Lord for these lessons. Give everything we know of ourselves to God. Than our knowledge should include, a good heart, listening to God’s word each day, remembering it and to have patience and perseverance a…

Luke 8:15. From the message But the seed in the good Earth – these are the good hearts who seize the word and hold on no matter what, sticking with it until there’s a harvest. We know the story well. We all hope we are the good Earth to take the seed and take good care of it. As I read many different translations, I saw patience, perseverance, endurance, and today, a very modern sticking with it.

Luke 8: 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.


An apple tree takes time to bear fruit that you can pick and eat. Patience within my faith journey is key to my bearing the fruit of the Gospel. As a human being I have struggles and vices that I deal with every day. Some I can overcome quickly, and others may take a lifetime. I know that Jesus doesn’t expect me to bear fruit right away. I will take it day by day until I succeed. Patience with myself is the key.


Dearest Lord, you know I need work.…
