Ears were an important part of some Jewish ceremonies. Blood was put on the right ear lobes of Aaron, the High Priest, and his sons (Exodus 29:20). A slave’s ear was pierced to show he belonged to his master for life (Exodus 21:6).
Our Bible verses today talk about people who have ears but do not listen. This is not talking about physically hearing God’s message with our ears. It is talking about paying attention to God’s Word and accepting it. Jesus used stories to teach His followers. He did this so wise people would understand, but evil people would not understand. These evil people refused to accept Jesus’ teachings.
When we become a Christian, it doesn’t matter if we are Deaf or hearing. God’s Spirit comes to live in us and help us learn about God and grow spiritually.
Ask God to teach you more about Him today and to understand His Word, the Bible.
