Theme: Stay Focused
Text: Luke 8:18
Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them.”
Words are uttered every second, and we are faced with the challenge of screening what we hear. With the advancement of technology, it becomes easy to get access to information and difficult to screen what you hear.
What you hear shapes your thoughts and what you believe. Some of the Israelites that were en route Canaan decided to return to Egypt. They did so because of the report the ten spies gave about the land they were about to possess. Their hopes and aspirations of enjoying the promise land were shuttered by what they heard. However, those who went on to the promise heard that same report, however, they believed the report of Joshua and Caleb.
Jesus advised that we pay attention to what we hear (Mark 4:24). Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). And without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Beloved, be focused on what you hear.
