“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.”
God’s word comes to us in scripture, in rituals, in silent prayer, through music, through other people, through art, through animals, and through nature and all of creation. There are many “seeds” being sown…but what is the condition of our “soil”? Are we cultivating our soil? What other words, music, TV shows, or friends might be poisoning our soil and “choking” God’s seeds? How are you cooperating in becoming the person God intended you to become?
