The Fruitful Life

The Fruitful Life

A grateful woman looks skyward
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.—Mark 4:18–19 NLT
As we prepare for Thanksgiving, it is the perfect time to thank God for giving us a fruitful life. Because of Him, we can weed out worry and cultivate trust and contentment. When we make Him the center of our life, we experience the true essence of living.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank You for helping me weed unhealthy worries and thoughts from my life.
