Luke 11:28 ESV "But he said, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and keep it!”"It was almost like he was standing behind me! As a long boy, I made some bad choices but I can remember the words of my father speaking to me before I made those choices. His words would come to me and sadly I didn't listen and got into trouble. Today's Word shares about hearing the Word of God and keeping it. There were so many times when I wished I would have kept the words of my father rather than just listening to them. Keeping them meant staying out of trouble but too often I would only hear them and choose the wrong path. I wonder what our lives would be like if we really kept God's Word? Would we keep ourselves on the right path of life? Would we see things through God's Eyes rather than our own, would our days be different? I guess the key is whether or not we are even hearing God's Word in order to keep it! Maybe today's the day we silence ourselves and listen for the Voice of the Lord as we live this thing called life on earth?! peace, tom
