Ears to Listen
We all have ears to hear, and Mark 4:9 tells us, “He that has ears to hear, let him hear.”
Hearing is a gift of God. So much of what we learn comes from what we hear. There are many sounds and voices clamoring for our attention. Do you ever ask yourself, “What are we listening to? What are we following?” Jesus wanted his followers to listen perceptively because all of life is a learning process. We have to separate the good from the bad. We have to evaluate all that we hear and see. We should remember the lessons to be learned from, “Blessed are they that hear the Word of God and keep it.” As we hear God’s Word, God is at work. Let us thank the Lord for the gift of hearing.
* Let us close our ears to hearing things which harm our faith.
* Let us open our ears to hearing what is good and right.
* Let us listen to words of encouragement and accomplishment and hope
Dear Lord, grant thy blessing on our hearing of Thy Word. Amen.
In His Grace,
Jack, from the church
