23 Jun Matthew 13:7

7 “Others fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them out.”  

My grandfather LOVED to garden. He had some of the most amazing rose bushes ever. He took tremendous care of those roses, and they grew beautifully. Want to know the first thing he always did? First, he pulled the weeds. He knew how ugly they were in the middle of beautiful roses, and also how much damage they could do. Jesus knew the same thing. The weeds he spoke of were the cares of the world like money, cars, beauty, popularity, and houses. What can those worldly weeds do? Just like in a rose garden, they can choke out His Word. Are you making sure you are getting the weeds out of your life?
