We all come from different walks of life and some of us are heavily influenced by the opinion of groups we belong to, but if God puts on your heart to share, do not be afraid of what people will think. In the Bible, Jesus talked about the seed that fell on 4 different kinds of soil: the one that fell by the wayside is the person who received God’s word, but it didn’t last because the enemy took it away. The one that fell on shallow ground is the one who received it but it didn’t last because of trials and persecutions. The one that fell on thorny ground is the one that let cares of this life and deceitfulness of riches choke the word out of them (I believe there are many people like that.) And at last the good soil: They keep the word in their heart and produce a great harvest! Just do your part and let God do the rest. Lately I have done that and so has my sister but we bore the reproach of our friends. However it is not us that they reject but his word and therefore did not have the fourth soil of their heart.
