Daily Devotion – CARES OF THIS LIFE


“And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection”

– Luke 8:14

The Bible is replete with young people who became great men of God by shunning the cares of this life. Moses forsook the riches of Egypt and esteemed the reproach of Christ. Joseph fled from Potiphar’s wife who tried to seduce him to sin against God. He enjoyed the favour of God and later became the Prime Minister of Egypt. Daniel resisted temptation which repeatedly confronted him in Babylon. He remained faithful to God and became a ruler. Does your life conform to the Word of God? Or do you claim to be a Christian, but pursue the cares of this world? Do not be like those who find it difficult to forsake evil such as immoral relationships, internet fraud, examination malpractices, cult and occult groups. There is hope for you if you surrender your life to Jesus today. Trust Him and he will give you power to overcome the cares of the present age.

Challenge: Forsake worldly lusts and live for Christ.
Prayer: Lord, deliver me from the pleasures and cares of this world.
Quote: He will give you power
Futher Reading: 1 John 2: 15 – 17.
