The parable of the sower is about listening well to Jesus. The good soil are those who receive his word deeply and sprout the fruit of a transformed life. In James 1:19-27, the brother of Jesus fleshes out what makes good soil good.
I. Weed out filth (19-21)
II. Fertilize with meekness (19, 21)
III. Water with doing (22-25)
IV. Bear fruit of transformation (26-27)
