Scripture reading– Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23. In today’s message, we’ll be focusing on “the rocky soil” found in verses 20-21. Jesus says some “fall away” when they experience trouble and persecution because of the word. Jesus tells us in multiple places that if we stand up for the kingdom we will meet resistance and persecution. There’s no way to avoid it. If you’re standing up for these kinds of things you will be persecuted. Don’t give up! You’re in good company.
