Scripture: Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

Theme: In the third part of this sermon series we’ll learn about the third type of soil Jesus talks about: the thorny ground. The thorns, he tells us, are “the cares of the world and the lure of wealth.” What does he mean? This world tells us that “worldly” success — money, career, reputation, etc. — is the secret to a good and beautiful life. But Jesus points us in a different direction, a better direction. But the pull of the world is strong, and many can’t shake it. How about you?
