Hearing and listening are not the same thing. Some people only have selective hearing, by picking and choosing what they want to hear, and never hearing what they need to hear. Not only should we use our ears to hear, but to listen also. Listening is very important and necessary, because it allows you to gain insight and information, which in turn will give you the wisdom on how to respond to the things you have heard.
Matthew 13:9 says “Let those with ears use them and listen.”
Be blessed, be encouraged, and have a great day.
