Mark 4:18-19 The seed that fell among the thorns represents others who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced.
A false sense of security brought on by taking glory for what God has done is doing and will do in our lives and desire for things that can harm our new found serenity can cause us to go back to whence we came. Don’t allow yourself to become distracted by things of this world. Material pursuits deafen us to God’s leading. Hearing when He speaks requires complete focus.
Prayer: Lord help me to avoid distraction from Your will for my life and stay focused on the process of continued Spiritual growth.
