I posted this on another part of the forum, but didn't know how to move it to the folks on this part. Therefore, I posted it here. My apologies if this is an affront to the system. .................................. Who is responsible? In the parable of the seed and ground I have a question for the thinking folk of this forum. Who is responsible for the dirt? Seriously, who determines where the road is, the rocks piles, the areas where the dirt is little – possibly because it is walked on as a path to the barn, and the well tilled and prepared soil? Is it the one who is spreading the seed? Is it the soil that has the ability to move from one area to another? Is it the sun, moon, rain, wind, or other forces of nature or environment? Perhaps, it is the natural state of some dirt chosen for plowing and some for walking upon. So, who is really in charge of the dirt?
