(Pro 22:17 KJV) Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.
I am sure I mark my age but those of you old enough may remember a commercial on TV where a couple of people were in a noise restaurant talking and then one of them say, “My broker is E.F. Hutton and E.F. Hutton says...” At that movement the restaurant become pin drop quiet as everyone in the room leans toward the guy talking. Then the concluding line is, “When E.F. Hutton talks, people listen”. I don’t know about that but it is the sense of this verse. When you accept that someone has something important to say situate yourself to benefit from the knowledge.
So? God is speaking. Sometime it is what has been called “the still small voice”. Sometimes it is the booming baritone of the preacher. Always it is the written word. Give a listen.
