Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
And that which fell among thorns are those who when they have heard go forth and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life and bring no fruit to perfection.
And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with excess and drunkenness and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches and the lusts of other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
1 Corinthians 7:32
But I would have you without worry. He that is unmarried cares for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord;
Be anxious for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.
Certainly the many words multiply vanity, what more does man have?
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment?
2 Chronicles 9:7
Blessed are thy men and blessed are these thy slaves, who stand continually before thee and hear thy wisdom.
