Am I fooling myself? Possibly. Probably. This is a tough question.
I have heard a lot. God’s word has been with me since I was very young. I have heard it most every day.
Listening without acting on what I have heard is useless. I must act on what I hear.
Jesus challenges me. I must do what God wants me to today.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.
