“They are the people who hear the word, but worldly anxiety, the lure of riches, and the craving for other things intrude and choke the word, and it bears no fruit.” (MK 4: 18-19)
This is a warning: “it bears no fruit.” We “heard the word” but forgot to practice rituals, daily dialog, tenderness, respect, gift of self or how to defend our spouses. There are consequences to our actions and lack of actions too.
“The seed is the word of God, Christ is the sower; all who come to him will live for ever.” (Gospel Acclamation)
