We’re considering Edwin Friedman’s observation that “the unmotivated are invulnerable to insight.”

Think about the parable of the farmer. The key to fruitfulness is the soil…not the seed. Yet, we in pastoral ministry devote hundreds of our most valuable hours fussing over the seed—while ignoring the soil.

Does that make sense to you?

In the text, Mark 4:3-20, Jesus’ directs our attention to the condition of the soil. “Some people are…” he begins.

The unmotivated are invulnerable to insight.
