"Listen, O daughter,"
Am I listening?
When the still, small voice of my Lord is speaking, am I listening?
When He speaks through my husband, my children, you, my dear friend, am I listening?
"Consider and incline your ear"
Am I leaning forward, eagerly hoping to hear something that will turn me away from my present path?
Am I thankful, grateful, happy to hear the words that sometimes grate, jar, sting?
It has always been the duty and privilege of the church to be listening and attentive to the Lord.
Eagerly leaning forward, as we do sometimes when we go to hear a famous speaker or when we attend a wonderful production and we don't want to miss a word.
Today I want to listen.
Are you listening, O daughter?
