The Daily Bible Verse 11th August 2018

Post by Pete » Sat Aug 11, 2018 6:57 pm

Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.
– Mark 4:18-19 (NIV)

Today's commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org Author of Making Sense of the Bible

We may think that Christianity is threatened by atheism or other religions, but Jesus tells us that one of the great threats to the faith is consumerism. Our need to live in security, comfort, approval or power will choke out the call to follow after Jesus. Our desire to “take it easy” may be one of the greatest obstacles to our Christian growth.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
