NT75 Day 4: Matthew 13-16

"He who has ears, let him hear."

That's what stood out to me today.  Jesus repeats it, so it's worth listening to - listening to an exhortation about listening.  And it's a good warning.

If you have ears and can physically intake the sound of His words, then you need to spiritually intake the content of His words.  Otherwise you walk around like a person who looked in the mirror and walked away forgetting what he looked like, continuing in ongoing self-deception (James 1).  You become the person who has all knowledge but not love (1 Cor. 8.1, 13.1-3).  Scripturally smart but spiritually small.  Head-knowledge without life-knowledge.  Facts without experience.

Which do you need think the world needs more of today?  And what do you need to apply in order to be that person?
