Greetings Seed Holders,
Today's Seed is "When God Calls...Do you really LISTEN?"
Throughout life we HEAR a lot of things that later, we don't recall, remember, or even take action on.
On Sunday's we HEAR the Word of God Preached, many times people can't recall the message or scriptures, by the time they get back home.
When we LISTEN, there a conscious effort to understand what we HEAR?
* We HEAR a bird sing, but when we LISTEN we can tell what type of bird (owl, robin, crow, hawk)
* We HEAR various sounds around us, but when we LISTEN we can tell what type of equipment is being used ( radio, TV, typewriters.
* We HEAR people talking in a crowd, but when we LISTEN we know if it's someone we know (mother, father, friends, etc)
* We HEAR music being played, but when we LISTEN we can tell which instruments are being used.
In life it is more important to LISTEN , than to HEAR. When we LISTEN we receive a more meaningful and valuable experience that becomes apart of us. We can then understand and use for our individual development, thus discovering our gifts and talents to be a blessing to others.
I KNOW YOU HEAR ME , BUT ARE YOU LISTENING....
