1. Leaky Heart - unbelief and rejection cause the Word to not bear fruit
2. Stony Heart - offenses cause the Word to not bear fruit
3. Thorny Heart - distractions cause the Word to not bear fruit
4. Ready Heart - reception through obedience brings about fruit
My job is to keep my heart ready to receive God's Word! Keep your heart with all diligence by removing stones and thorns and keeping the soil tilled - ready to believe and obey!
Walk with the Lord and cultivate a fruitful heart!!!
