Say What?

 October 31
 Daily Reading – Jeremiah 23-25 / 2 Timothy 3-4

GOD SAID:

Jeremiah 25:4 And the LORD hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear.


GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

      One morning when I was reading the paper I remember seeing a cartoon. In the first frame there was a little boy standing with his fingers in his ears and from his mouth came the words “la la la, la la la Hum Hum La la la.” Standing next to him was a father reading off a list of all the chores he expected him to do that day. In the second frame, the father is looking at the boy and the boy is looking back at the father. The father says, “Did you hear what I said?” The boy looks at his father, with a false puzzled look and says, “What?” The next frame is the same as the first, with the boy back making noise with his fingers in his ears and father reading the list. The forth frame was the father asking again, “Did you hear me?” and the boy saying, “What?” And so it goes.

      In today’s world with such busy lives, many times we may treat God this same way. From the beginning of time, God has told us of a Saviour, Jesus Christ. He has shared with us how to live to receive the most blessings from this life and the life to come. However, like the young boy in the cartoon, we are so busy making as much noise as we can with our lives and entertainment that we have shut out the wisdom being given to us by God. He keeps telling us, but are we really listening? Let’s not be hearers of the word only, but doers also. Its time for us to listen to what God has to say, and obey.


GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    My friend, when we stand before God at life’s end and He asks, “Did you hear what I said?” we had better have the right answer. At that moment with God, if we have the wrong answer, the final frame of the cartoon will not be good one.


What will you say when you stand before God?
