It is not enough just to hear the truth, and not obey the truth. Hearing without obeying means nothing because it gets a person nowhere. A person who obeys is a wise person, and will find themself shedding fewer tears because they will spend less time in trouble.
Romans 2:13 says “Merely hearing God’s law is a waste of your time if you don’t do what He commands. Doing, not hearing, is what makes the difference with God.”
Be blessed, be encouraged, and have a great day.
