Thorns

 

Some problems can keep us from being the big producers. In the parable of the sower, Jesus mentioned several. “18 Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, 19 and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful” (Mark 4:18-19 NKJV). This is a thorny subject.

I’ve known people who hear a word such as this and say well that’s not me, when all the time it is. This is the materialistic person who tries to keep up with their neighbor (didn’t want to use any name here). Riches and “things” can take over a person so that He worries about it so much he can’t focus on anything spiritual. Thorns so clog the heart that they choke the Word. The picture in this blog has a few green “thorns” growing in the wheat field. So far, there is plenty of harvest but if they don’t correct the condition, the wheat field won’t yield so much.

God will take care of your needs and desires. Don’t let them run amuck.
