Luke 8:14 And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
One of the most dangerous things for all of us to be so worried about living that we forget who is life. We get hung up on what we think of as real riches. We choose pleasures. These things cause us not to be useful to the Lord and HIs kingdom. We are so busy doing our own thing that we do not have time for what is essential for Him.
Have you allowed money, pleasure, and life, in general, to get in the way of your serving God? Do you find yourself to busy to think about the things of God? Do you want to serve God and just can’t seem to get around to it? Maybe God is speaking to us in this verse!
