I was reading along in the Book of Luke. I’ve come to the parable of the four seeds.

There it was!

Luke 8:14 (NIV) The seed that fell among thorns, stands for those who hear, but as

they go along their way, they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures and they do not mature 

Are you worrying?

How are you spending your tax return?

Or are you concerned about paying taxes?

Are you spending more time planning your vacation than time reading the Bible?

Are you going along your own way? 

We hear the Word.

We believe the Word

Suddenly, we slowly become choked by life.


We don’t mature!

I just read the saddest verse in the Bible.
