Fertile Failure

Yet just as from the heavens

the rain and snow come down

And do not return there

till they have watered the earth,

making it fertile and fruitful,

Giving seed to the one who sows

and bread to the one who eats,

So shall my word be

that goes forth from my mouth;

It shall not return to me empty,

but shall do what pleases me,

achieving the end for which I sent it

Isaiah 55.

Matthew 13

Birds ate the seed on the path.

Sun scorched the seed on the rocks.

Thorns choked the seed among them.

Fruit was produced by the seed in the rich soil.
