at make us happy. When we focus
on positive and whole some things, happy memories, friends, family
then it is hard to be worried about everything else.
One of the names of the Holy Spirit is Comforter.
The Holy Spirit can help take your cares and ease them. He is our
companion and best friend and He reminds us that God has control,
so don’t worry.

(Give each child a little green weed)
Many people hear the Good News, which is the gift
of salvation, but they are more worried about their day to day activities.
They spent a lot of their time fussing over things trying to make
themselves happy. Seeking the things of this world is like the seed
that fell among thorns. People can only be truly happy when they
have a genuine relationship with God, through His one and only Son,
Jesus Christ. Let’s spend some time telling God how sorry
we are for worrying and list the things we have worried about, ask
Him to forgive us and promise to spend more time with Him, talking
to Him, praising and singing to Him, being quiet with Him and just
listening, take the list and put it in the trash bin!
CLOSING PRAYER: Heavenly Father
we know now that thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but
the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the
word, making it unfruitful. We come against that right now. Everyone
that has heard this message nothing will be choked out but will
produce fruit. Amen
