What is the application relating to the seed that fell on the good soil?

Mark 4:20 (ESV)

20 But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”

Mark 4:20 makes clear that the seed sown on the good soil owes its growth and fruit to the fact that the word was heard and processed in life.
