Lugen Family Office has embarked on its own journey to create legacy projects that will make a difference in the world. The following is an example of just one of our Legacy Projects:
As far as the reasons why Lugen Family Office believes in sustainable Legacy Projects, we will let the Parable of the Sower explain the story within our heart.3 Key Ingredients to Understanding the Parable of the Sower
- The sower. A sower is an old English term meaning someone who plants.
- The seed. The seed is what is planted.
- The Soil. The soil is the hearts of the people.
To understand the parable of the sower you need to understand the farming techniques of the days of Jesus. In our western civilization we prepare the soil prior to planting the seeds. In the times of Jesus, and even in many parts of the middle east today, they spread the seed before the soil is prepared. That is why Jesus gives 4 types of soil that the seed falls on. In this parable, Jesus does not tell the sower to judge the soil or decide what soil is ready for planting and what soil is not ready. He says that the sower sows the seed. It is not our job to judge, discern, or decide what soil is ready for a seed to be planted. It is our job to sow the seeds regardless of soil condition.
There are 4 types of soil that we plant seeds into.
- Seed that falls by the wayside. The wayside was the beaten path around the field. It is the ground that has been hardened and trampled on by the feet of people. This soil, otherwise known as a human heart, has been walked on until it has become hardened and impenetrable. These hearts have been hardened because of the years of being walked on by people. This seed falls on soil that is skeptical and cynical.
- Seed sown in rocky soil. This soil is similar to the wayside. It has no place to dig deep roots in the heart of this person because this person’s heart is wounded and damaged with areas that are hard and inflexible to the change needed to be good soil. Because of this, at the first sign of trouble, this person gives up because they have no ability to stand up against the crowd. They are the typical people pleaser.
- The seed that is choked out of fruitfulness by thorns. This heart is one that is in good enough shape that it produces a living plant that survives. Yet because of other priorities in it’s life it never produces any fruit. It cares more about the basic mundane things of life, or focuses on getting rich, or places other desires above the desire to do what it was meant to do which was produce fruit. Since it’s priorities are out of alignment, this seed never gets to the point to producing other seeds.
- The seed in good soil. This seed sprouts, grows and produces more seeds. It produces a harvest. It reproduces and it effects people all around them. This seed starts the principle of the parable of the sower once again.
When you understand the parable of the sower you can see why it can be so powerful. The parable of the sower talks about those that produce fruit producing 30 times, 60 times, even 100 times more than they started with. It is the dream of Lugen Family Office to make each of our clients a seed that produces fruit for many generations to come.
Now that is something to think about! Become part of our movement today and help make the world a better place.
