Reflection: Every day, I have to listen to music. When I work, I have to stream music online because that’s all the security settings will allow me to do. It’s been wonderful, as it drowns out the quiet and helps me work through the mundane. When the music stops, I don’t always notice it straight away. Suddenly, I become aware of the silence and I click on the website where it asks me, “Are you still listening?” I almost apologetically click the “I’m listening” button, and without judgement the music starts
playing again. That question, “Are you still listening?”, has been running around in my head. Am I still listening? I find that I get frustrated when my children don’t listen to me, yet can I say that I listen to my Heavenly Father? With the busyness of life, I don’t think I can honestly say I give room to listen to God. Yes, I talk to him, but do I listen to him?
Question: When was the last time you listened to him?
Prayer: Our Heavenly Father,Please help us to listen to what you say and treasure your commands. Tune our ears to your wisdom. Amen.
