“Hearing the Right Thing”
Matthew 13: 22: “This is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.” The word comes to us - sometimes softly, sometimes loudly, but it comes. (Remember Elijah in the cave at Horeb?) But the trappings and philosophies of the age are always blaring in our ears, screaming their message of selfishness and doubt, doing all they can do get our full attention. They are assaulting our children, through the media and even the very textbooks assigned to them. We must forsake our worry - that’s sin - and hear the Word of God with faith!
