Listening and hearing are not always the same. We can listen to someone, but not really hear them, not really accept their message. We come to a parable in the gospel of Matthew about how different people hear the message of the gospel. Listen as pastor Jody Sledge explains for us why some don't receive the message of the kingdom and challenges us to make sure that the gospel takes root in our lives and bears much fruit.
