Some are like the seed that lands in the gravel. When they first hear the Word, they respond with great enthusiasm. The seeds in the gravel are those who hear with enthusiasm, but the enthusiasm doesn’t go very deep. It’s only another fad, and the moment there’s trouble it’s gone. Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

Mark 4:16 ~ Luke 8:13 ~ Proverbs 19:2 ~ Ephesians 6:7
