"And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it."
Luke 8:7 NKJV
We must guard ourselves against the thorns of this world. We must be careful how we spend our time. Are we spending it glorifying and worshiping God as we were created to do? Or have we found ourselves caught up in other things? Where does your time spent with God compare with your time spent watching TV or the internet? I would venture to say that many secular Christians spend more time picking out what they'll wear to church than they do reading God's word. There are thorns all around us, be careful not to let them choke out your time spent with God.
