We are to stay focused in the right direction. With our knowledge and understanding of the word of God, we are not to let the busy traffic of this life turn us in the wrong direction toward the lusts, pleasures, and cares of this life in this world. How we maneuver through the traffic in a lifetime will determine where we end up on the Last Day.
Jesus explained that we must not “Let the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word and it becometh unfruitful” (Mark 4:19).
“He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the Last Day” (John 12:48).
