Now there are two ways that you can look at this little plant from a spiritual point of view. One would be that need to sow the "seeds of the gospel" wherever we go because we never know when there is going to be a little fertile ground where it can take root. Who would have thought there would have been any fertile ground here. It really isn't up to us to determine if the ground is fertile enough to sow that seed
Then another way of looking at this is that this is a plant that probably doesn't have a good root system, it wouldn't do very well in the hot scorching sun. It would need someone to help cultivate it, water it, perhaps chip away at some of that rock so it could develop roots. We are all to play a part in this process, sometimes we are sowers of the word, sometimes we get to play a part in the cultivation and sometimes we get to reap.
A scripture the Lord has been reminding me of again and again lately is Ephesians 5:15 "Be very careful, then, how you are to live, not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil" A good word for distractable me
