Mark 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
This verse refers to unbelievers that can’t trust God because of the hold that money has on them. They are too worried about this world to concern themselves with the next world. They want more of this world’s comforts. They want what they can see. Things so blind them that they can’t see their need for salvation, God, or the next world.
Another fear I have is how believers do the same thing about the cares of this world. They get saved. They are on their way to heaven, but they let money so control them that they can’t find God. Their business is more important than their relationship with God. They are consumed with this world.
Where are you right now? Are you letting this world choke the work of God in your life? Have you continued to be an unbeliever? You will regret that sooner or later.
Are you a believer that has become so this world conscious that you can only find time for God on the weekends. Do you choose work over God? Do you think in terms of how God can help you be who you want to be and get what you want to get?
Break the chokehold of money on your life. Seek God today.
