Listening with your heart

Ask the Spirit to guide you as you read God’s word for today.
Read Matthew 13:1-23

When reading the Bible we often see a connection between God’s word and the human heart. In this parable Jesus exposes that connection. He emphasizes the importance of listening with a prepared heart and shares a prophesy from Isaiah.

For this people’s heart has grown dull,
and with their ears they can barely hear,
and their eyes they have closed.
Matthew 13:15a ESV

  • What does Jesus’ parable reveal to you about the difference between simply hearing God’s word and listening with a prepared heart?
  • Write a prayer asking the Spirit to prepare your heart so that you can receive the seed of God’s precious word
    (I love Psalm 139:23-24).
