Luke 6:44; Luke 8:7; Luke 8:14
"For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush.
"Other seed fell among the thorns; and the thorns grew up with it and choked it out.
"The seed which fell among the thorns, these are the ones who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with worries and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to maturity.
