Guard your steps as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools…
When approaching the target a good reconnaissance begins by using the ears before the eyes. When approaching the Throne of Grace it is the same, the ears first. God puts a premium on the listener/learner. As you read or listen to the Word of God, is your brain on transmit or receive? Remember, God’s not after your attendance, He’s after your heart.
Application: When you finish reading your devotions or hearing a sermon, ask yourself, “What is God trying to tell me?” Then write it down.
