Today’s Scripture Selection: Proverbs 8:34
“Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.”
How’s your hearing?
Specifically, how’s your spiritual hearing?
If it’s in good working order, you will understand the importance of the above section from the Book of Proverbs.
Who calls us to “listen” carefully? Wisdom.
Wisdom calls us all to keep our ears wide open for instruction. And who offers that instruction? It’s God, of course.
The section from Proverbs continues:
“For whoever finds me (wisdom) finds life and receives favor from the LORD.”
Of course, to do this, we have to tune out a few things:
- Worthless chatter
- Insensitive gossip
- Cruel rumors
- Foul humor
- Wrong advice
- Popular, but wrong, counsel
Only if we tune out this “noise” can we hear the still, small and very wise voice of God.
So how’s your hearing?
I hope it’s in good working order; because God has a whole lot of wisdom to share with you.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, open my eyes – and my ears – to all you have to say. AMEN.
