Sunday – Poetry

Reading – Psalms 49-51

Highlight Verses:

“Listen to this, all you people! Pay attention, everyone in the world! High and low, rich and poor—listen!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭49‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I’m not hard of hearing (much) but sometimes I am “hard of listening.”

I put filters on and only hear what I want to hear.

Usually I can get away with it.

Sometimes I find myself wondering, “Did they say this or that?”

I wind up getting lost or not knowing when I should take how much medicine since I missed part of the instructions.

Fortunately, that doesn’t happen often.

When it really matters is when I ignore the Word of God or a godly person’s sage advice. I can find myself in a pickle of poor decisions when I let my own desires supersede the advice I should have listened to.

So the next time I see the Bible say “listen” or “pay attention” I’d better pay attention.

Have you ever found yourself in a bad situation because you didn’t listen?
Is there a situation where listening to wise advice saved you from trouble?
