Mark 4:14-20
14
"The sower sows the word.
15
"These are the ones who are beside the road where the word is sown; and when they hear, immediately Satan comes and takes away the word which has been sown in them.
16
"In a similar way these are the ones on whom seed was sown on the rocky [places], who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy;
17
and they have no [firm] root in themselves, but are [only] temporary; then, when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately they fall away.
18
"And others are the ones on whom seed was sown among the thorns; these are the ones who have heard the word,

"And those are the ones on whom seed was sown on the good soil; and they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold."

1 Peter 1:23-25
23
for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, [that is], through the living and enduring word of God.
24
For, "ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF,
