Bible: Mark 4:14-19
4:14 The sower sows the word. 4:15 These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: Whenever they hear, immediately Satan 1 comes and snatches the word 2 that was sown in them. 4:16 These are the ones sown on rocky ground: As soon as they hear the word, they receive it with joy. 4:17 But 3 they have no root in themselves and do not endure. 4 Then, when trouble or persecution comes because of the word, immediately they fall away. 4:18 Others are the ones sown among thorns: They are those who hear the word, 4:19 but 5 worldly cares, the seductiveness of wealth, 6 and the desire for other things come in and choke the word, 7 and it produces nothing.
