Going In One Ear And Out The Other

The story is told of a doctor, a lawyer and preacher who went out deer hunting one morning. Some time later, they all saw, and shot at, the same deer. As they approached the fallen animal, they began to argue over whose shot it was that had hit the deer.

As they continued to argue back and forth, it became evident that they would need the assistance of the game warden. The game warden was called to the scene, and upon taking a quick glance at the deer, proclaimed that it was the preacher’s shot that had hit the deer.

When asked how he could be so sure so quickly, he responded, “Well, it went in one ear and out the other.

Beloved, are we intently listening for God's voice or are we allowing His message to go in one ear and out the other?
