    Faith Blinders

    Faith Rocky

    Faith Rebel

    RemainingFaith

    Value of Gods Message not understood, and is disregarded.

    Contentment in surface faith in God, skips dedication to depth needed to stand firm.

    Destructively allows worldly priorities to compete with faith in God as primary.

    Enduring faith in Jesus, fruitfully understands and practices Gods Word.

    Blind Heart

    Rocky Heart

    Rebellious Heart

    Remaining Heart

    Hearts disposition blinds hearer from grasping Gods Message.

    Enthusiastic at first to Gods Word, Rocky Heart shallow & lacks will to strengthen initial gift.

    Heart partially commits to Christ, leaving disastrous vulnerability to worldly desires & concerns.

    Heart fully dedicated to Jesus is firmly established, reaping fruit of righteousness plentifully.
