VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Persisten bearing thorns and thistles

"But if [that same soil] persistently bears thorns and thistles,"

Matthew 7:16 (The Message)

7:16 Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say. A genuine leader will never exploit your emotions or your pocketbook. These diseased trees with their bad apples are going to be chopped down and burned.

Matthew 13:22 (Amplified Bible)

13:22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the Word, but the cares of the world and the pleasure and delight and glamour and deceitfulness of riches choke and suffocate the Word, and it yields no fruit.

Thorns and thistles are the cares of the world, the pleasures, delight, glamour, and deceitfulness of riches choke and suffocate the WORD, and it yields no fruit.

B. It is considered worthless and near to being curse -- whose end is to be burned.

"it is considered worthless and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned"

John 15:6 (Amplified Bible)

15:6 If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned.

Matthew 13:40 (Amplified Bible)

13:40 Just as the darnel (weeds resembling wheat) is gathered and burned with fire, so it will be at the close of the age.

There's a worthless CHRISTian, CHRISTians who have valued other things replacing the WORD, prioritizing the blessings not the Blessor.

1 John 2:15-17 (Amplified Bible)

2:15 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.

2:16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself].

2:17 And the world passes away and disappears, and with it the forbidden cravings (the passionate desires, the lust) of it; but he who does the will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides (remains) forever.

Deuteronomy 6:5 (The Message)

6:5 Love God, your God, with your whole heart: love him with all that's in you, love him with all you've got!

Deuteronomy 6:5 (Amplified Bible)

6:5 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your [mind and] heart and with your entire being and with all your might.

IX. CONCLUSION:

I keep my eyes on the Blessor, the Giver, my Savior, LORD JESUS, all others will just follow me.

Hebrews 12:2 (The Message)

12:2 Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we're in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he's there, in the place of honor, right alongside God.
