There are many people who have heard the gospel message and yet they have never responded. The message had been shared and yet it had no chance to take root. As we sow the seed, we need to do more than just share a couple of verses and get a decision. We need to bring them to a place where they can take root and grow.
"And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them.
Even though some seed may fall by the wayside, we need to continue to sow. Don't be discouraged. The seed may not take root this time, but when the time is right, the seed will fall on the good soil and grow.
