Luke 8:14 – The Message : “And the seed that fell in the weeds—well, these are the ones who hear, but then the seed is crowded out and nothing comes of it as they go about their lives worrying about tomorrow, making money, and having fun.”
Wow! This hit me hard today. I really do not want to be the seed that fell into the weeds and got crowded out. I would rather be the seed that flourished and grew up above the weeds into the beautiful thing God created me to be. So.. how do we get crowded out and our growth stunted.. just act like all of the other weeds around you. It says it right there in that scripture… just worry about tomorrow, worry about making money and worry about having fun. Fool proof way to be a weed. I think I know a lot of weeds, I think I struggle with being one. Think about it.. how much do you worry about tomorrow..”what if, what if , what if”. If you are honest, you know it is a lot. What about making money, this consumes most lives. Having fun.. oh you know, sometimes all you think about is what kind of fun you are going to have this weekend, or going on vacation. You are consumed with worrying with what kind of fun you can have. Quit the worrying, quit being a weed!! Give to God and GROW!!!
What about you, do you see that something you are worrying with or about could stunt your growth! Leave me a comment!
