The seeds are like people and how they’re scattered on the ground (path, rocky soil, thorns and good soil) each is like different symbol of how people accept word of God. People on path = really lazy people, bird that eats them is like Satan b/c they don’t believe. People in rocky soil = believe but not very strong b/c seeds can’t form roots/no foundation, shoot up really fast and believe but then trouble/persecution they fall away. People in thorns = believe but too tempted by sin (thorns) choked off by temptations/sins.
