Practical Proverbial, from 2 Timothy, 29 March 2019

What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus.   2 Timothy 1:13 (NIV).

Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.” – Mark 4, verse 20.
