Just for Today

He said to them:  “This is what the Kingdom of God is like.  It is like what happens when a man casts seed upon the earth.  He sleeps and he wakes at night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows – And he does not know how he does it.  The earth produces fruit with help from no one, first the shoot, then the ear, then the full corn in the ear.  When the time allows it, immediately he dispatches the sickle for the time to harvest has come.”  Mark 4:26-29 – William Barclay 1956.

William Barclay was a professor of religion at Trinity College, Glasgow and a member of the Church of Scotland.  His “Daily bible Study” was published by Westminster Press.  It is a Christian Classic.  Barclay points out this is the only Gospel that contains this parable.
