Today the TV closed caption declared cremini mushrooms to be criminal mushrooms. And I wasn’t even watching a murder mystery! Wow, I’ve been eating those mushrooms too! Are they safe? Should I be afraid?
The good thing about TV is that you can change the channel for the scary parts, even if the scary parts are just foolish spelling mistakes. Too bad life doesn’t work that way.
We’ve all had our scary moments in life. Things like illness, death, finances, family issues, will stress us out if we let them. The following verses are from Christ’s parable. They are our warning to make sure we keep our eyes on Christ, even when criminal mushrooms attack us.
“The seed cast in the weeds represents the ones who hear the kingdom news but are overwhelmed with worries about all the things they have to do and all the things they want to get. The stress strangles what they heard, and nothing comes of it. (Mark 4:18-19, MSG)
Prayer – Father God, help us lean on you and not fear the things that stress us out. Amen
