Why is it so hard to hear or listen.

We are who we are. As the years go by, we develop a confidence in our ability to reason. But is it confidence or stubbornness. I don’t know how many times I heard the expression, you have a hard head. I wasn’t the only one. There is an engrained resistance to following and obeying. The scripture say, foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child and the rod of disciple will drive it far from them. But there seems to be a remnant left in us wanting to do our own thing. Most of the time, it means right back into trouble. Even if we have surrendered our hearts to Jesus, that rebellion still shows it’s ugly head. That’s why it’s a choice that we have to make every day, all the way home. God has the plan for our lives and the only condition is to follow and obey. So, when we know better, we are about 2 steps from falling on our face. It has to be a conscious decision on our part. Even if we have to rely on other people. As the scripture says, behold the old man is dead and we have become brand new in Jesus. As the Apostle Paul walked on this earth, he said I die daily. He did this so Jesus could lve through him. So, why is it so hard to hear or listen?
