PAY ATTENTION

Mark 4:24-29
He went on to say, “Pay attention to what you’re listening to! Knowledge will be measured out to you by the measure of attention you give. This is the way knowledge increases. Those who understand these mysteries will be given more knowledge. However, some people don’t understand these mysteries. Even what they understand will be taken away from them.” Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seeds on the ground. He sleeps at night and is awake during the day. The seeds sprout and grow, although the man doesn’t know how. The ground produces grain by itself. First the green blade appears, then the head, then the head full of grain. As soon as the grain is ready, he cuts it with a sickle, because harvest time has come.”

There is something that I believe and I’ve tried to teach my children: Everything is easy if you know the answer. It is such a simple and at the sametime profound truth. For almost everything in this life there is an answer. Sometimes the answer is discovered easily and sometimes it may take years to uncover the right answer.

Pay attention to what you’re listening to! Knowledge will be measured out to you by the measure of attention you give. This is the way knowledge increases.

The more you question, the more answers you seek, the more you pay attention, the more you learn.

The Bible isn’t a story book. It is an owner’s manual, an instruction book for understanding God, others, and yourself. Many people ask, what is the meaning of life? What’s my purpose? They ask but fail to pay attention, to actively seek the answers in The Book.

Become a student of the Bible.
