Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
The seed which fell among the thorns, these are the ones who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity.
“ Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap;
but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
1 Corinthians 7:32
But I want you to be free from concern. One who is
unmarried is concerned about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord;
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
For there are many words which increase futility. What then is the advantage to a man?
“ For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
2 Chronicles 9:7
blessed are your men, how blessed are these your servants who stand before you continually and hear your wisdom.
