These are my thoughts.
We don’t the seeds of the gospel we throw out to eat by the
birds of the world but we are not to let the chance of this happening keep us
from being used to spread the seed.
Job 5:6-7 King James Version (KJV)
6 Although affliction cometh not forth of the dust, neither doth trouble spring out of the ground;
7 Yet man is born unto trouble, as the sparks fly upward.
Job 5:6-7 Good News Translation (GNT)
6 Evil does not grow
in the soil,
nor does trouble grow out of the ground.
7 No indeed! We
bring trouble on ourselves,
as surely as sparks fly up from a fire.

These are my thoughts, please share yours.
6 These often times come and grow from the heart, evil is
planted and before people know it they have trouble escape the trap of sin,
Jesus is the only escape but few will go to Him. The world is full of evil even
though most people will never admit this and will say things like there is good
in all people, this is true if they have Jesus because if we don’t we all on
our way to judgment,
7 Sin is like a fire it destroys things in our lives and
will end up destroying us. Following after this world leads to nothing but
trouble. We have to be willing to admit we are sinful and that this world is
evil to be able to accept Jesus they way we should. It is when we realize He is
our only hope and the only One who is good that we can truly submit to His will
and Him and Lord.
Keep our eyes on Jesus.
