The Sower.

The many homilies that I’ve heard about Christ’s Parable of the Sower usually focus on the symbolism of the types of ground on which the Seed falls. That’s fine, especially since Christ himself explains the parable this way.
But reading the story today, what struck me is the profligacy of the Sower: willing to scatter a lot of seeds on the chance that one might take root in unpromising places like ourselves.
