Bible commentary

Discussion for Mark 4:6

  • Le\'Andre for verse 6
    My revelation of this verse is the stubbornness of people, they have not allowed themselves to be conformed. They seek to part of, but refuse to accept the spirit into their hearts. They say they are humble, but become heated with rage when they cannot convince those who are living the life that we are showed through the teachings of the spirit. People have not changed since then we have the faithful and the faithless. We are children of GOD through faith.
  • VeNessa Chambers for verse 6
    I believe that this portion of scripture is stating that if one does not have the word of God as a foundation in their heart then when circumstances or situations arise, their faith will then fail.
