“And others are the ones sown among thorns; they are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world, and the delight in riches, and the desire for other things, enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. But those that were sown upon the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.”
-Mark 4: 18-19
Do the cares of the world, delight in riches, or concern for things choke out the word of God and its fruitfulness in your life? What one thing can you release to the Lord today to be more receptive to the word?
