What are you hearing, Child? When you listen what do you hear? Do you hear the realities of everyday life crowding in your ears? Do you hear the tv? Do you hear the radio? Do you hear the sound of the car’s motor? Do you hear the furnace, the sump pump, the dishwasher, the water running? Do you hear the toilet flush, the dog bark, the cat’s scratching in the litter?
Do you hear your children playing? Do you hear them when they talk? Do you hear them when they sing or play their musical instruments? Do you HEAR them? What are you listening to? Do they annoy you? Do noises annoy you?
When your son plays the drums what are you listening to? Are you listening to the banging and clanging or are you REALLY listening? Can you hear it? Can you hear the gift? Can you hear the ability? Can you hear the heart? Can you hear God’s work? Listen on a deeper level. Don’t listen with your ears….listen with your heart then you will REALLY hear. Faith’s ears are not physical. Everything apart from faith is sin, including your hearing.
