“Therefore consider carefully how you listen.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

When we come together to specifically hear someone speak to us from the Word of God, we rightly expect the speaker to be well prepared. But as listeners, we also have a responsibility to be prepared to listen! It’s not enough for us just to be present, as we need to actively engage our hearts with the message so that it can have the necessary impact. And the same is true for our personal devotional times in the Word – it’s not enough just to rush through our daily reading and we’re done. We need to approach it with an open and expectant heart, which wants to hear from the Lord.
