Spiritual deafness. It’s a persistent problem – people refusing to hear the word of the Lord.
Jeremiah speaks for mankind…in all times: “…though he has sent all his servants the prophets to you again and again, you have not listened or paid attention.”
So it is in our day. Many people refuse to listen…or pay attention.
Political correctness blocks their hearing. The opinions of people become more important than the word of the Lord.
Sinful behavior blocks their hearing. When people entertain iniquity in their hearts…they are unable to hear.
Business blocks their hearing. The rush of life keeps drowning out the word of God.
But…whatever the excuse…the end is tragic. The word of the Lord is not heard.
So…be both a hearer and a doer.
