Apr 23 – The Importance of Hearing Correctly

Recently it was announced that Swiss audiologists have developed a new hearing chip that restores speech comprehension, particularly with hearing loss in the high frequency range. It is important, because the number of people who can hear well, but can’t understand what’s being said, is increasing. The dilemma is that people with hearing loss in that high frequency range do not consider themselves to have a hearing problem. Very interesting! And the Bible too has much to say about the importance of proper hearing and understanding. For example, John wrote, –“ He that is of God hears God’s words…” A little later, he wrote, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me…”And Paul explained, “…faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”Dr. Luke warned in his gospel, “Take heed how you hear…” The wise will hear the Word of God, but will always compare scripture with scripture, always interpret it in context, and not accept biased interpretations. We need to take heed how we hear.
