The seed cast in the weeds represents the ones who hear the kingdom news but are overwhelmed with worries about all the things they have to do and all the things they want to get. The stress strangles what they heard, and nothing comes of it.

Mark 4:18-19 MSG

Do you have a list of things you “have to do” and “want to get”? These tend to be the very things that distract us from God and stress us out.

Stress, emotions and desires choke out God’s Word. It takes spiritual work to not allow this to happen in our lives.

Which persistent stress, emotions and desires are overwhelming you and distracting you from how God wants you to live? Identifying these is the first step toward overcoming them.
