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.
Do not be discouraged by those around you that are hypocritical and talk the appropriate way but don’t walk the way I intend. Let it go and concentrate on your relationship with Me. You can plant seeds, but let Me take care of the details. Sometimes it’s true what they say… “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.” I give the opportunity, but much too often I’m disappointed by the choices that people make. I won’t force anyone to do anything, it must come from their own free will.
It’s unfortunate… some do choose to come to Me, but they gradually lose sight of Me and choose to turn around and walk in their own ways instead of remaining and trusting in Me. It doesn’t happen overnight, but because of the cares and worries in everyday life being allowed to consume them… these become more prominent than trusting Me to take care of them. They seek the “things” of this world they desire and pretty soon I’m not thought of that often… I have been replaced and I’m not sought after any longer. It’s the everyday little issues that add up and gradually pull you away. Don’t give up your special time with Me. This is most important for the foundation of your soul.
