Mark 4:18-19 (NLT) “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.”

And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?”
