buy generic neurontin Jesus’ parable of the SOWER brings the key message of the day. A farmer, we are told, went on to sow good seeds in four different fields. The first field was a beaten path. The soil being hard did not allow the seeds to penetrate the ground then birds came and ate them. Obviously there was no yield. The second field was rocky. Therefore, there was little soil. The seeds began to spring up but there was so little soil that they soon perished for lack of strong roots.   The farmer had no better luck with the third field that was covered with thorny bushes. The thorns choked the young plants which were beginning to blossom. There again, there was no yield. The persistent farmer finally sowed his seeds in a rich fertile field. Great was his joy when he collected an abundant harvest.

We must learn to be strong in character if we want God’s grace to flourish within us.
