Understanding Makes Roots


He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them.

Matthew 13:11 NIV


This chapter shows a very famous parable from Jesus (The Sower) and it summarizes in following verses (19-23):

  • Someone who hears the word but do not understand, the devil takes away the seed that has been planted.
  • Someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy, but because there is no roots, when troubles comes, it quickly falls away.
  • Someone who hears the word, but worries about life, suffocates the word with the deceitfulness of wealth.
  • Someone who hears the word and understand it, the seed grows and produce many more that was sown before.


The devil’s intention is to don’t let the seed (the Word) that was sown in our hearts to grow, to produce, to flourish.

Without the understanding of the Word of God, the seed does not grow its roots in our hearts. We focus on the others things, on the worries that this life gives (provision, wealth, health), and that suffocates the seed.

It is very important to ask God for understanding of the Word, and that the Word brings actual changes in our lives.


Lord, help my heart to be always ready for the seed, so the Word and the understanding in my heart will produce many more times what was sown.
