  • Rain was a reason for great joy back in Jesus’ time because they were so dependent upon their own crops for food.

Romans 8:18-23—Creation Itself will Be Set Free

Matthew 13:1-23—The Parable of the Sower (Beginning of Parables Discourse)

  • CCC 2707. We must develop the desire to meditate regularly on Scripture or else we’ll be bad soil for God’s Word.
