Are You Listening?
"I was once walking through the forest alone. A tree fell right in front of me -- and I didn't hear it."--Comedian Steven Wright
You Can Say That Again
A man bragged that he had the finest hearing aid available.
A friend asked, "What kind is it?"
He replied, "About 2:30."
The Signal Gets Weaker
I listen to my local radio station while I'm driving in my car. When I drive away from the radio tower, the signal gets weaker and weaker. But if I turn the car around and drive back into town, the signal becomes stronger and I can hear it again.
In the same way, we stop hearing God when we drift away from Him. But if we will turn around and come back to Him, we'll hear His voice again. The closer we are to God, the clearer we can hear Him. "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).
