Мысли на каждый день года по церковным чтениям из Слова Божия

Феофан Затворник


«Вот, вышел сеятель сеять». С тех пор, как вышел этот сеятель на сеяние, он не перестает сеять. Сначала сам лично сеял, потом через апостолов, а наконец через Божественные писания и богомудрых учителей. И доселе всюду сеется слово истины Божией. Будь только готов явить себя благою землею, непременно засеменишься; засеменное же Бог возрастит. Как же представить из себя благую землю? Вниманием и изучением слова Божия, сочувствием и любовью к нему и готовностью тотчас приводить в дело то, что узнаешь. При таком настроении, ни одно слово не ляжет поверх души, а всякое войдет внутрь. Сочетавшись там с родными ему стихиями духа, оно пустит корни и даст росток. Питаясь потом — свыше наитиями духовными, а снизу желаниями благими и трудами, оно возрастет в древо, даст цвет и плод. Сам Бог устроил так вокруг нас, и потому нельзя не удивляться нашему бесплодию. А все от невнимания и нерадения.

Co2 11:5-21
Mar 4:1-3
But I do not think I am in the least inferior to those "super-apostles."
I may not be a trained speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way.
Was it a sin for me to lower myself in order to elevate you by preaching the gospel of God to you free of charge?
I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so as to serve you.
And when I was with you and needed something, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia supplied what I needed. I have kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so.
As surely as the truth of Christ is in me, nobody in the regions of Achaia will stop this boasting of mine.
Why? Because I do not love you? God knows I do!
And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about.
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ.
And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.
I repeat: Let no one take me for a fool. But if you do, then receive me just as you would a fool, so that I may do a little boasting.
In this self-confident boasting I am not talking as the Lord would, but as a fool.
Since many are boasting in the way the world does, I too will boast.
You gladly put up with fools since you are so wise!
In fact, you even put up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or takes advantage of you or pushes himself forward or slaps you in the face.
To my shame I admit that we were too weak for that!
Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water's edge.
He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said:
"Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed.
