Daily Bible Reading for Wednesday, January 24th:

Proverbs 23:9 – Sow in Good Soil


 9 Don’t speak to fools;
they will only ignore your wise words.
– Proverbs 23:9 NCV

Both the Proverb writer and the Lord agree that we shouldn’t cast our pearls before swine (Matthew 7:6).

But aren’t we supposed to bring the gospel to the world?

In the same way a farmer wouldn’t try to plant in shallow soil, we should put our efforts into those that are willing to listen to the good news. Jesus explains it all in the parable of the sower (Luke 8:5-15).
