A poem about not littering

Let no one say,
And say to your shame,
"This was a place of beauty....
Until YOU came."

I finally finished this book last night after having people tell me to read it for about five months. I loved the ending, and I also loved Mrs. Granger's letter to Nick. It was a really cool book.

The Parable of the Sower Matthew 13:1-23

In this story, Jesus told about the word of God being like seed that a sower (or a farmer) threw out. It fell on many kinds of soil.
Some of the seed fell by the wayside, along the path. The birds came down and ate the seed. This is like the person who hears the message, but does not understand it. The evil one comes and takes it away.
Some seed fell on the rocky ground.The plants came up quickly, but there was not much earth so the plants dried up. This is the person who receives the word, but falls away when trouble comes.
Some seed fell on the thorny ground and the thorn bushes choked the seed. This is the person who is worried about life and wealth.
Then some of the seed fell on good ground. Those seed grew into healthy plants and produced a good crop, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold and some thirtyfold.

"The good soil," said Jesus, " is like people who are honest. When they hear God's word, they remember it, and do what God says." These people produce a bountiful crop for the Lord.
