Hearing (1)

Can some people hear something and not understand what they heard? Or can some people see something and not understand what they saw? In our Bible Reading today Jesus said, “They see, but they don’t really see. They hear, but they don’t really hear or understand” (verse 13b).
Sometimes we are like the people Jesus was talking about. We read a Bible verse that tells us to stop sinning. But we continue to sin. Or a Bible verse tells us to praise God. Instead, we grumble and complain.
Some people read God’s Word but they do not pay attention to it. Maybe you read the Bible, but you ignore what it tells you to do. The problem is not your ears. The problem is your heart and your attitude. You need to pay attention to God and His words in the Bible.
Ask God to help you pay attention to His Word. Then you will know how you can love and obey Him.
