Mark 4:18-19 (KJV)
And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
These days we live on some pretty thorny ground. It would not be difficult for our spiritual lives to become choked and unfruitful. Notice the three things Jesus warns us against:
- The cares of this world
- The deceitfulness of riches
- The lusts of other things
It’s probably not necessary to expand upon them as, I am sure, the Holy Spirit of God, can impress upon our hearts those ways in which we can fall prey to any one of them.
I only wish to issue the warning. Don’t let such weeds choke out your life for God.
