I have often wondered how it is that two people can sit in the same area, hear the same message about some portion of Scripture, and walk away with two completely different understandings? Perhaps one is joyful and the other is unaffected. The reason for this discrepancy in understanding is some do not know how to effectively listen to the Word of God.

There are so many things that compete for our attention but very few of these things really deserve it. The Lord is worthy of absolutely nothing less than our undivided attention. The Lord has something to say to each of us that will be for our good. If you listen to God's Word with an open ear,heart and alert mind, you will get something from Him.
