Voices

What voices do you listen to?

  • Oprah
  • Sean Hannity
  • Anderson Cooper
  • Jimmy Fallon
  • Warren Buffett
  • Jimmy Buffett?
  • Bono

We could ask a lot of these kinds of questions: What TV do you watch? Do you read the newspaper? (what’s that?) Are you a good listener to all points of view? Or, do you only listen to those who agree with you? How do you form your opinions?

Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.” John 10:27

How do we hear Jesus’ voice? By spending time with him, by reading Scripture, by listening. But do we let all the other voices squeeze Jesus’ voice out?

Sometimes, I fear we do.

May we focus our attention on listening to that which comes from God, in humility, with patience and open hearts and minds. Jesus can help us form our opinions: “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:12 And, may we form our opinions in love.

We’ll be looking for you tomorrow as we wrap up The Spirituality of U2 series. It won’t be the same without you.

Grace be with you,

Vikki
