The Parable of the Sower and the Seed - Mark 4 - Sunday School Craft for Kids (I got the stones as a piece of wallpaper and the "thorns" from Christmas Garland. I also was going to add a sun sticker to the rocks.)

Parable of the Sower
Kid's Explorer (Maze) The Most Important Quest for the Lost
Parable of the Sower begins in Robledo, twenty miles from Los Angeles, California in July, 2024. It is the fifteenth birthday of Lauren, the narrator. She reports a dream she had the previous night in which she was flying. The house was on fire and she was swallowed up by the flames. Then the dream turns into a memory of when she was seven years old, talking with her stepmother under the stars at night. She lies down looking up at the stars. Her stepmother talks about the city lights, and how there are less of them now than there used to be.
Today we will start a lesson series on the parable of the sower. Sower is another name for farmer. We will follow four different groups of seeds throughout this lesson series. We see that although Jesus was speaking about seeds in the parable, the story really applies to people. Today we will see how the seeds that fell on the path are like people that have no interest in God.
