Ever, But Never

“You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise, they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.” (Matthew 13:14–15, NIV 1984).

My Musings – Few in western culture today, I believe, will be able to claim they have not heard the Gospel. They may claim that they never understood. But that too will ring hollow. The reality is, they could have. But they have closed their eyes. A choice. They have resisted the truth to the point that their hearts have hardened. No longer able to see or hear, perceive or understand. A choice.

My Advice – Look into it. Listen to it. It may be that you are still able to hear and understand, see and perceive. Another choice presents itself. Turn, and He will heal you.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
