When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path.
This is the first part of the parable of the sower. Jesus is explaining to his disciples that when someone first hears about the word of God that person might not understand nor grasp any concept of God’s teachings. Therefore if that person’s knowledge and understanding are shallow the devil is waiting to regain control of that person. We must remember the devil is waiting around every corner to take over our thoughts and emotions with worldly things to fill our hearts.
That happened to me when I was 18yrs old. It has taken me 32yrs to regain Jesus back into my life. The devil was distracting me for so long, but I destroyed him. The only way to keep Jesus with you is to read the bible for your self. He talks to you through scripture.
The more you read, the more you understand. Then, the more you understand, the more the bible makes sense.
