“And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,” (2 Peter 1:19, ESV)

The Importance of Hearing

For Spiritual Life and Growth

bunnies listening
With our ears we can enjoy varieties of music, experience the thrills of explosions in movies, listen to the whispers of friends or loved-ones in our ears, or be alarmed by loud sounds that startle us. But the ear also has a function that is essential for the soul. It can hear words that go deep into the heart of a man. Destructive words can cause a person to hate others and altogether become bitter and angry. Encouraging words can cause a person to be filled with comfort and courage.

Jesus emphasized the importance of hearing through his ministry. In the parable of the sower, Jesus shows us that the way in which you listen, can make a dramatic difference in your life.
