TV Church S01E24 | “Four Kinds of Dirt”

Planting seeds requires a great deal of faith and hope. The same is true when we plant a spiritual seed. As followers of Jesus, we sow spiritual seeds by living lives that reflect the life and teachings of Jesus…lives of integrity and compassion. We also put our faith into action by helping others and sharing the love of Jesus with them. But some of those seeds we sow might start to grow, and sometimes they might not.

💬 Message:
Travis Collins teaches on Jesus’ parable of the sower. Jesus told this parable and then explained it to his followers, something he didn’t always do. Learn more about the 4 types of soil and how this applies to faith on today’s episode of TV Church.
