Stop and Listen!

We have two ears and only one tongue in order that we may hear more and speak less. -Laertius

Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10

Sure is hard to be still isn’t it? Go, go, go always on the go. We have to go to the grocery store, take kids to Drs. Appointments, get car’s oil changed, pay bills, go to work, fix supper, take the trash out, take the kids to ball games, and take the kids to school- I ain’t finished yet. Wash the dishes, take a bath, make tea, clean the bathroom, mow the yard, change the oil on the vehicles, and the list will go on and on and on!

But God says, “Be still and know that I am God.” So how do we do this? By putting God first! That is before your kids, before your spouse, before your work, before anything that may try and come in between you and Him! That is being in church on Sunday. That is being in church on Sunday night. That’s being in church on Wednesday. That is reading your Bible, praying and tithing! We can add to this list but for the sake of time we will stop there.
