Closing our eyes and ears to God’s truth (Matthew 13)

Let’s be honest. God’s truth is sometimes hard to hear. Sometimes it stings. The question is: what do we do with it?

Some people, as in today’s passage, close their eyes and ears to the truth. The result? Calloused hearts that can no longer hear from God.

That’s the danger with hearing truth. If you do nothing about it, your heart becomes calloused.

How about you? Have you read or heard something from God’s word recently that stung your heart? What did you do with it?

Did you say, “Yes, Lord. By your grace and strength, I will obey. Help me!”?

Or did you close your eyes and ears to the truth?

God wants to heal your broken life. But you will never know that healing if you close your eyes and ears to his Word.

What will you do?

I'm from Hawaii, but have been in Japan as a missionary/English teacher since 1995. I'm currently going to a church called Crossroad Nishinomiya, an international church in Nishinomiya, a city right between Kobe and Osaka.
