Not Listening

It has happened generation after generation. I did it to my parents. They did it to theirs. My kids have done it to me…NOT LISTENING; everything a parent (or teacher) says going in one ear and out the other. And, of course, it’s not only the kids that are guilty.

As God’s children, we find the same thing to be true in our spiritual lives. He says so much that is for our good, but we don’t stop to listen. We are too busy, we are distracted by other things, and so on and so on. Is your life guided by the words of God? What has he asked you to do that you aren’t doing?
