Listen up! Pay Attention! • Matthew 13:15-16

Since we have two ears and one mouth, we should devote less time to talking and twice as much time to listening. We ought to prioritize to spend time praying, reading, hearing and sharing God’s Word. Thereby our faith increases. Jesus says, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Few have “ears to hear,” while others have ears but are dull of hearing. Since they do not have “ears to hear,” their eyes are closed and their hearts have become hardened. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn, and be healed. But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear (Matthew 13:15-16). But even more blessed are all who hear the Word of God and put it into practice (Luke 11:28).
