“A farmer went out to sow his seed.
As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path
and the birds came and ate it up. 
Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil.
It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. 
But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched,
and they withered because they had no root. 
Other seed fell among thorns,
which grew up and choked the plants.
Still other seed fell on good soil,
where it produced a crop—
a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. 
Whoever has ears, let them hear.”
Matthew 13:3-9

The lectionary readings for this sixth Sunday after Pentecost are:

Psalm:  Psalm 65:9-13
First reading:  Isaiah 55:10-13

The Collect:

Almighty God,
you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless
till they find their rest in you.
Give us peace in your service,
and in the world to come
the joy of seeing you face to face;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
