We live in a noisy world. You can’t even leave your house with noise of all sorts being thrust at you. It would seem that the loudest voices always win. Being heard is more important than being right.
When you strive to be heard, what are you shouting? Are you shouting simply to be heard? Or are you shouting truth?
What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ears, shout from the housetops for all to hear!
Matthew 10:27 (NLT)
We are to shout what God whispers. But I think we often get caught whispering what He shouts.
Here’s something to think about: if we’re always shouting, how can we ever hear God’s whisper? Perhaps it’s time to be quiet for a while and figure out what we should be shouting before we add to the noise.
