Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional 29 August 2019 – INVASIVE THREATS
And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them.
Recommended Reading: Matthew 13:18-23
Jesus warned that the worries of life and the deceitfulness of riches are highly invasive threats to our spiritual health. When it comes to worry, we have to trust Him with our cares and keep His peace guarding our heart and mind. When it comes to the deceitfulness of wealth, we need to give generously to God’s work, which helps to keep our possessions in perspective.
To keep your spiritual health strong and vibrant, avoid earthly distractions that occupy your time and obscure your vision.
[Our hearts are] filled with a vast quantity, and, as I may say, a thick forest, of thorns… I do not say to root out, but even to cut down the thorns!
