This one came from my reading today:

The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. Luke 8:14-15

The first verse is the one that convicted me here. I get bogged down by these things, and I can confirm the result: I don't mature in my relationship with Christ.

I don't want to be stuck as a spiritual child. Time to absorb the word, retain its message and persevere!

I can relate to the first part too. I want to have a right relationship with God and persevering produce a good crop!

Thanks for sharing!
