What does Luke 8:7 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 8:7

And some fell among thorns
On ground which had within it the roots of thorns and briars; and design such hearers who have their hearts filled with worldly cares, and sensual lusts and pleasures:

and the thorns sprang up with it;
and grew faster than that:

and choked it;
as the above things do the word, and make it useless and unprofitable; so that though it took place for a while, and was professed, yet process of time was neglected and dropped; and, as Mark says, "it yielded no fruit"; at least that came to perfection.
