Hard of Hearing
In the Christian culture it is far too easy to become calloused and hard to the Biblical truths that are drilled into us from childhood. When we feel like we already have things figured out, we become subconsciously closed off to what God may be trying to tell us. Instead of reading our Bibles merely to mark it off the daily checklist, we should always read it for the purpose of hearing what God wants to tell us through each passage and to then respond by doing what He tells us to do. By approaching the necessary reading of Scripture in this way, we maintain a soft heart and open ears to be able to hear God when He speaks to us.
