In Matthew 13, Jesus spoke the parable of the sower to highlight four responses to God’s Word.
Some outright reject God’s Word.
Some immediately receive it, but not for long.
Some receive it, but riches and worldliness choke the Word out of them.
Some receive the Word in their hearts, and obey the Word as evidenced by the fruit they produce (the life they live and people they help).
Be like the 4th responder to God’s Word. “Read it through, pray it in, live it out, and pass it on” (Navigators training in the 80’s).
