“…unto you that hear shall more be given.”

Mark 4.24

“…unto you that hear…”

This is a very interesting statement.  For those of us who are listening…

Listening to what?

Sometimes I have tried to study while an exercise class is going on in the Hall next to the office here at the church/community centre – I can hardly think -  much less hear!

“…unto you that hear…”

Jesus is speaking to His disciples, “And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.”

Sometimes people get into a bad habit of listening to all sorts of rubbish!  Things that are negative, depressing, untrue; things that do not encourage us or help us as born again Christians!

So yes, hear… and really listen!  Hear, and really think about what we are hearing!

We should be careful what we listen to and make sure we hear a lot of good things!  Good things from good sources.  Good conversation.  Good music.  Good words, thoughts and prayers from the Bible!  The more of the good things we hear, the more the Lord will give us to hear!  Amen!  Please Lord, that is what I need!
