So loud that we cannot hear!We cannot hear the words. We do not feel the pain. We are too busy to experience the grid or even celebrate the joy. We are so numb that we don't see the blood oozing from their heart or the life draining from their soul! There is too much NOISE to listen!!!
Jesus took time to listen, not to the just the noise or the loudest noise, but to the least loudest of all! He heard the quietest voice among the crowd. He not only heard, but listened! He cared. He then reacted personally to the need.
Are we too caught up in the popular noise of this world? Are we quiet enough to hear the still small cry of a child, the loneliness of a elderly grandparent, the starving soul of a neighbor, coworker or classmate?
Are we living, loving, and listening as Jesus did?
