There can be 3 causes why people's growth can be stunted:
1. Fear - People don't want to change.
3. Pride - A person doesn't think they need God.
" Don't be proud but accept God's teaching that is planted in your heart. This teaching can save your soul (James 1:21)."
No seed can take root in any of these.
So, how do you continue to grow spiritually?
2. You must be DETERMINE to grow. Spiritual growth is a choice. You cannot blame anyone else. You can get as close to God as you choose to be. "Other seed fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. This seed began to grow, but soon it withered and died for lack of moisture (Luke 8:6)." "Some people are like the seeds on ROCKY SOIL. They welcome the word with joy, whenever they hear it, but they don't develop any roots. They believe for a while, but when their faith is tested, they abandon it (Luke 8:13)." The ROCKY SOIL= a superficial committment. "Don't only hear the message, but put it into practice, otherwise you are merely deluding yourselves (James 1:22)."
