Avoid the Thorns of Digital Information

It is far easier today to be distracted rather than focused. In these verses, the Gospel writer, Mark, reminds us that Jesus taught his disciples to avoid the thorns of life. The thorns of life can be the distractions which take our eyes away from Jesus.

The seed that fell among the thorns represents others who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced.

Mark 4:18, 19 NLT
