Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. (Matthew 13v7 NIV)

The culture surrounding you is not conducive to living a godly life.

Hard choices have to be made.

A daily decision to walk with Him.

What you are comfortable with may be a hinderance.

The thorns are the problems and pleasures that encompass you.

Choose the path rather than the comfy chair.

There are so many things that can choke your life.

How things make you feel is not to be your guide.

He is the only reliable guide.

He is consistent.

He is unchanging.

He is utterly trustworthy.
