Our WORD PICTURE for Today: “L-I-S-T-E-N”
Ask yourself the question: To whom do “I” need to “LISTEN” ?
When you are young, I would hope that it “IS” your parents, Dad and Mom.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a “L-I-S-T” to help you decide when to
“LISTEN” to friends (?)..the news (?)…and anybody else? Well, there “IS”
Look at the last three (3) letters of “LISTEN”… yes, like “TEN” in “TEN”
Commandments. But that is just the beginning because when God spoke
through the prophets to the people, God told them to say: “LISTEN”to the
Word of God…..who is Jesus…..and God continues even today to speak to
us through His written Word, the Bible’s Scriptures.
Our Father, when you showed your Glory through the Son (Jesus) on the mount of Transfiguration, you clearly told the Apostles, Peter, James and John……… and all of us: “This is My Son….. “LISTEN” to Him.” Help us to see, hear and obey your Word each day so that we might Listen Wisely and grow in understanding. Through your Son, The Word, Jesus, Help us.
