May 3 – What Happened?

Read: Matthew 13:1-23

But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. (Matthew 13:16 ESV)

Did it work? Did you hear the Word of God and respond to it? Did it take root in your life? These are all questions Jesus asked the crowds that had gathered to listen to him.

What do you do when you hear the word of the Lord? Sometimes it depends on what it is exactly that we hear. Some truths are just harder to accept and implement than others. Sometimes we get confused, sometimes we get stubborn, sometimes we get fearful, and yet God is hoping that what he says and speaks to our hearts will take route. He wants us to let it change our lives.

The word Jesus used to describe people who were affected and changed by God is blessed. If you see what He is trying to say you are blessed. If you hear what He is trying to say you are blessed. It’s not always easy to obey. Sometimes we just don’t understand. But when we do obey we are blessed.
