I have continued collage making for the children's book for this parable. I am excited to see how it is developing, and as I create, I am thinking about the character of Jesus, how initial consideration in Him can be snatched, not take root or choked - meditation on the Word while I make the 3 poor soil pages. I am also thinking He took our hard hearts on the cross, defeated Satan (the birds), wore the thorns on His head, and was put in a tomb with a rock sealing it on our behalf. Here we see hints of the poor soil of our own hearts born by Jesus.
