Reading 3, 1Cor 3:1-9 : You are the field and house of God

1 But I, brethren, could not address you as spiritual men, but as men of the flesh, as babes in Christ. 
2 I fed you with milk, not solid food; for you were not ready for it; and even yet you are not ready, 
3 for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh, and behaving like ordinary men? 
4 For when one says, "I belong to Paul," and another, "I belong to Apol'los," are you not merely men? 
5 What then is Apol'los? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. 
6 I planted, Apol'los watered, but God gave the growth. 
7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth. 
8 He who plants and he who waters are equal, and each shall receive his wages according to his labor. 
9 For we are God's fellow workers; you are God's field, God's building.


Gospel, Lk 8:4-15 : The Word which is sown

 

4 And when a great crowd came together and people from town after town came to him, he said in a parable: 
5 "A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the path, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air devoured it. 
6 And some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. 
7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew with it and choked it. 
8 And some fell into good soil and grew, and yielded a hundredfold." As he said this, he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." 
9 And when his disciples asked him what this parable meant, 
10 he said, "To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God; but for others they are in parables, so that seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand. 
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 
12 The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, that they may not believe and be saved. 
13 And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy; but these have no root, they believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. 
14 And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature. 
15 And as for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bring forth fruit with patience.
