Let Go of Attachments

Mark 4:18-19
“Those (seeds) sown among thorns are another sort. They are the people who hear the word, but worldly anxiety, the lure of riches, and the craving for other things intrude and choke the word, and it bears no fruit.”

Often have we heard the words of Jesus either read to us at church or in our own reading of scripture. But the question is…have the “seeds” (Jesus’ words) sprouted and taken root? How fertile is our soil? Do we spend time tending the soil in silent prayer, contemplating bible verses and spiritual reading? Perhaps if we spent more time cultivating our soil…the thorns (all the distractions of the world) would wither…and our lives would blossom in ways we could never have imagined!

Suggested song of the day– “Turn Off the Noise” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
