A farmer or gardener knows that placement of seed is vital to it’s growth. They take care to make sure anything that will cause damage to the growth of the plant is taken out of the environment. Providing nourishment through routine watering, plenty of sunshine, and vitamin packed rich soil, makes for the optimal growth environment.
Let’s drop our children off in the middle of the city and tell them to fend for themselves, without any prior survival training or resources to live. The environment they are dropped in makes a difference to their growth. No one in their right mind would do that. Neither would you plant a seed in unprepared ground. God wants the same for those who hear His Word.
