We Are All Ears

Mark 4:24
And He was saying to them, "Take care what you listen to."
So many voices calling for our attention. Every 7 minutes on TV we have commercials. Each Spokesperson is trying to sell you their product. Use this shampoo and you will look like this covergirl. Please. If we work out for two minutes a day we will look like the steroid laden model they have doing the commercial who works our 4 hours a day. Take this pill and lose weight overnight. We must be careful to what we listen to. So much negative news, and gloom and doom reporting. Try this. Turn on Christian radio when you are riding along and listen to good music with great lyrics. Talk with God in prayer and then Listen to what He says to you in return. Surround yourself with good Christian friends that care about you. When you need counsel talk, and listen, to them. Listen to that still small voice as God communicates with you each day. Last but not least, try this... turn off the news for 30 days. You will be surprised how much your attitude will improve, blood pressure and stress level will go down and you will have more time for talking and listening to those you love. Are you listening?
