Here comes the third type of path where the seed can be thrown. Let us see the result of having a heart similar to what we will explain.

Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. (Luke 8:7)

 At this point, the soil is neither hard nor storny, it is soft and productive.But, it is not pure because it contains several kinds of seeds. It is therefore a mixed vegetation in which the seed is mixed with thorny plants. These spines were probably not apparent when the farmer sowed. Over time, they have developed to invade the entire field. The seed had germinated but it was literally choked by the thorns which grew much stronger.

In verse 14, Jesus explained this parable:
The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.

This reaction to the word is perhaps the saddest. Here the Word of God has reached its goal, the heart of man, but it is stifled before it can has its effect in the person life. Stifled by what? The worries of everyday life, its pleasures, career and material things. The things that affect our spiritual life and prevent the word of God to be manifested in our life. Maybe the spiritual life of the person is not completely extinguished, but it remains as it is. It doesn't mature nor bear the fruits that Jesus wants. And what does God do to every branch that doesn't bear fruits? 

John 15:2 and 6 tell us:
  He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful (V 2)

If anyone does not remain in me, he is like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. (V 6)

This shows us that those who do not bear the fruits are thrown into the fire and burned. So, people of God, you who listen to the word of God and let the pleasures of this world take upon you, do you want to be burnt into this fire?
 How many christians started well and later fell because of the traps of evil and the pleasures of this world and their flesh? What is the end of these people? Do you think they shall inherit the kingdom of God?


Today, is the opportunity for you who are in this situation, to leave behind the greed for this world and do not let anything take over your spiritual life. 

God bless you, Thash.
