Scripture of the Day - May 29, 2012

Mark 4:18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. 

Many people hear the Word of God yet they ignore it. They are told of the gospel of Jesus yet they refuse to follow Him.
Why? Because the cares of this world are more important to them. They are wrapped up in their lives and have no time for God. They have no desire to know what God has to say. "Sorry, I'm just not interested" they say. Their eyes are blinded and they can only see so far.They cling to their present lives thinking 'this is everything'. Whether they are on top of the world or in the gutter, whether they are surrounded by friends or live a lonely existence, they are afraid to let go. They cling to what they know and refuse to let the Word grow in their lives. What a sad state to be in.
