The seed that fell among thorns Luke 8:14
Story: Jesus spoke to people using lot a parables, one of the parables was the Sower and the seed. Jesus in private explained the parable to His disciples. There were four kinds of ground on which the seeds fell, one was on the thorny ground, Jesus explained the thorny ground like this; these are people who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.
Lesson: Seed, the word of God we also heard, are we worried about life, are we living some how to be rich and to enjoy the pleasures of the world. Did we grow in the relationship with God? Are we maturing in the word of God? What is our priority? What do we spend our time for; to think and solve the issues of life, or do we really spend talking to the Almighty. Jesus died on the cross that we have an intimate relationship with Almighty by the strength of Holy Spirit. Are you choked by life?
Prayer: Father Lord, change my heart that I will be a good soil, so that the word that I read and listen will bring forth hundred forth result. Amen.
