Clutter Clutters

Ikki Soma

"The seed which fell among the thorns, these are the ones who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity." Luke 8:14

I spent about half an hour decluttering and cleaning my office this morning. I never intentionally planned for my office to get cluttered, but over weeks and months of meetings and ministry, books and papers have stacked up everywhere.

 As a church, we’ll be cleaning and decluttering this Saturday. As a staff, we’ve already started some of the pre-work. Quite a bit of clutter has accumulated over the years! I think we could have our own yard sale of unique items uncovered and discovered.

 Our hearts, like our offices and homes, get cluttered. In Luke 8:14, Jesus tells us that our hearts get cluttered by worries, riches, and pleasures. Like weeds in a garden, they sprout. What are the weeds in your heart that need to be decluttered, so that you can grow spiritually?
