Take Heed How You Hear

not listening

A little phrase Jesus used that I have skipped over many times without too much thought (as I’m sure you have too) was brought to Brittany’s attention this morning and she shared it with me:

“Therefore take heed how you hear.” – Luke 8:18a

Am I paying attention to how I hear? Am I even listening? Or is it the old “in one ear & out the other?”

When we are listening to a sermon or a devotion, are we dialed in or tuned out? Jesus said to look at HOW you hear.

A common obstacle is the presentation, right? If the presentation is boring, its hard to focus. Presenters are definitely on the hook to make the Gospel engaging but, the hearers are supposed to be… hearing.

Let me also give you this scenario: If you are in a plane and someone is presenting how to put on a parachute in the event of a crash: no matter how boring his or her presentation is- YOU’D BE TAKING HEED HOW YOU HEAR!

How much more important is hearing, understanding, & absorbing the Gospel of Grace?

Let’s hear on purpose. Take heed how you hear!

If this blessed you, please Like & Share!
