OK so you are thinking about planting your very first garden. If you pull out your copy of the Bible you may be surprised to find out that  "God's Gardening Tips" are found in there...especially in the parable of the sower.    In order to enjoy success with this new found hobby you need to put into practice "God's Gardening Tips".
      Any garden worth having needs the soil tilled before doing anything else. "Break up your fallow ground"  Jeremiah  4:3  Sometimes as Christians we become complacent and before long the soil of our hearts needs roto-tilling if we aren't careful. "Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. You have plowed wickedness, you have reaped iniquity; you have eaten the fruit of lies: because thou didst trust in thy way..." Hosea 10:12 &13  The way I see it if we as Christians neglect our intimacy with our Creator and do things our way then the garden of our hearts becomes infested with weeds and tares that cripple our walk with our Lord. We need to implement "God's Gardening Tips" and keep this garden alive and well! 
     Fertile soil and now proper sowing is next. Allow this clip to shed light on what type of soil produces the best bountiful harvest..



From the gospel of Luke we learn that the interpretation of this parable of the sower is as follows:
Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Those
by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh
away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be
saved
. They
on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy;
and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of
temptation fall away. And
that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go
forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life,
and bring no fruit to perfection But
that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart,
having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. Luke 8: 11-15 

      After verse 12, if you notice, the inspired,inerrant, infallible forever settled in heaven, living  Word of God never suggests that the others are not saved..."If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire." 1 Corinthians 3:15   I may be wrong but I think they are in Christ on the way to heaven but bearing little fruit. Of course the parable ends with those on the good ground. Seed sown on right soil with proper use of "God's Gardening Tips' yields much fruit. "In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold
not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this
or that, or whether they both shall be alike good". Ecclesiastes 11:6
