Matthew 13:3 Then He spoke many things to them in parables, saying: “Behold, a sower went out to sow. When you are just a churchgoer, the Word comes in and have no impact upon your life. You hear the preaching and clap hands like everybody but as soon as you leave the church you forget what heard and go back to your old ways.
Matthew 13:4-7 And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them. Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth; and they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them.
