If you have children, I don’t need to tell you how frustrating it can be to try and get your kids to listen sometimes. How is it that kids can tune out their parents’ voices so easily? They get so immersed in their own world of play that everything else around them just becomes background noise, including your voice. I imagine that God sometimes feels that way with us. We get so distracted by our worries, riches and pleasures that we become engrossed in our own lives, easily allowing God’s voice to become just part of the background noise. Take time today to be still, to tune in and to listen for His voice.
“Jesus replied, ‘The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord.’” - Mark 12:29 NLT
Lord, thank you that you speak to me. Don’t let me allow distractions to drown out your voice into the background. Help me to tune in and listen for your voice. In Jesus’ name, amen.
