Turning a deaf ear

I spoke to you, … but you did not hear. Come to me, hear, and your soul shall live.
Jeremiah 7:13; Isaiah 55:3

Turning a deaf ear
It was raining. A 15-year-old boy’s bicycle was standing out in the garden. His father called him and asked him to put it under cover. When the father returned home in the evening, the cycle was still in the garden.

The head of a department in a firm reminded a colleague that a task had to be carried out urgently. The colleague nodded agreement, but the next day the work had still not been carried out.

Were the son and the colleague in the wrong? Undoubtedly! Both the father and the departmental head had a position of responsibility that gave them authority. If they gave commands, they did so according to their responsibility, not to degrade anyone. Was the son’s or the colleague’s freedom to act limited by the orders given? To a certain extent, yes, but only within a sphere of which they were fully aware. No firm can function without appropriate leadership, and no child can grow up responsibly without benevolent and just guidance.

Our omnipotent God wishes to instruct all for their good. He is the Creator, and we are His creatures. It is our duty to attend to what God expects of us. He speaks with authority, but also out of love. For the present time He gives us the simple, clear order to repent and turn to Him: He “now commands all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30).

How do we react? Do we turn a deaf ear, or do we trust Him and His wisdom and love?

Today’s reading: 1 Chronicles 5:1-26 · Psalm 80:1-8

IT IS FOR YOUR GOOD

From the beginning, the devil’s modus operandi has been to sow the seeds of doubt in the heart of mankind with regards to the plan and intentions of God for them. For example, while God’s reason for restraining Adam and Eve from eating the forbidden fruit was to keep them alive, healthy and prosperous, the devil...More
