Choked by worry
In Matthew 13, Jesus tells an amazing parable about the Sower who graciously sows seeds everywhere. Some of the seed falls near the weeds and never gets to grow properly. This is Jesus' explanation for this sad truth...
"The seed cast in the weeds is the person who hears the kingdom news, but weeds of worry and illusions about getting more and wanting everything under the sun strangle what was heard, and nothing comes of it." - Matthew 13:22
If we are seeking 'more' of the things that aren't eternal, then we must expect more worry and less peace. Sadly, we must also expect that we will not grow into the people God has created us to be.
God has sown the seed. Now the choice is ours.
Any thoughts on this parable?
Living in Grace,
