Topic: The Cares of The World [Sunday April 30, 2017]
Scripture: And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. Mark 4:18-19
Thought For The Day: It is possible to use money to serve God, but you cannot serve God and money.
One of the weapons of the devil to weaken a man’s faith in God is distractions. Satan would attempt to distract a man from his vision especially if he is focused on God.
There are many things that distract a person from following God. One of those things is the cares of this world. A life that is filled with the cares of the world is a life that is passionate for vanity and passionless for spirituality.
Note that, the cares of the world are the enemies of true spirituality. The pursuit for the latest fashions and fads of this life, the craving to belong and the struggle for the things that this world has to offer are the enemies of true spirituality. Our anchor Scripture talks about the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches and the lust for other things.
Lust is an inordinate affection for that which we are not licensed to get. It is possible to use money to serve God, but you cannot serve God and money. It is possible to master the things of this world and it is possible to be mastered by the things of this world.
Beloved, be focused on God despite the distractions in the world.
Remember this: It is possible to use money to serve God, but you cannot serve God and money.
Refuse to have your passion and affection centred on the transient vanities of this life because everything we see will fade away someday.
