“The Dirty Truth: Becoming Who We Were Created To Be” is a series designed to help you make progress in life. By applying the principles derived from Jesus’ parable of the soils, we can actually become people who are fruitful – changed by God and bringing change to those around us.

Here’s a quick overview:

Parable of the Soils (Matthew 13:1-23, Luke 8:1-15)

 

Four Skills 

Soils                                                     Skills

Hardened   –> Vulnerable         Receptive (Overcoming Silence)

Shallow    —-> Deep                     Tenacious (Overcoming Trials)

Thorny    —->  Clear                     Intentional (Overcoming Temptations)

Desolate   —>   Fruitful              Proactive (Overcoming Rebellion)

 

Four Paths

Isolation                 Independence                 Influence

Hardened   –>      Vulnerable        —->          Prophet

Shallow    —->       Deep                   —->          Guide

Thorny    —->        Clear                  —->           Trailblazer

Desolate   —>          Fruitful           —->          Catalyst
