Foster: the adversary's tools

Sunday, October 14, 2018
    [Jesus:] “The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.”
    —Matthew 13:22 (NIV)
    Our Adversary majors in three things: noise, hurry and crowds. If he can keep us engaged in “muchness” and “manyness,” he will rest satisfied.
    ... Richard J. Foster, Celebration of Discipline: the path to spiritual growth [1978], San Francisco: Harper, 2003, p. 15 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 13:22; 6:24-25; Mark 10:23-25; Luke 12:16-21,29-31; 21:34; 1 Tim. 6:9-10; 1 John 2:15-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep the enemy’s distractions away, and fill my heart with Your word.
