Do You Have Ears to Hear?

Read isaiah 6:1-13 with MAtthew 13:1-17

Matthew 13 is a distinct chapter of the New Testament focused on parabolic teaching of the Kingdom of Heaven. Here the Lord Jesus explains the purpose of parables, which is directed preeminently to the Church, and not the ungodly. In the Parable of the Sower there are three soils representing those, even in the Church, who would hear God's Word proclaimed and yet have no fruit born. Do you have ears to hear?
