Listen to the truth
One of the verses that caught my attention this past week was:
Isaiah 30:9 & 10
"For this is a rebellious people, false sons, Sons who refuse to listen to the instruction of the Lord;
Who say to the seers, "You must not see visions"; and to the prophets, "You must not prophesy to us what is right, speak to us pleasant words, prophecy illusions."
This was said about Judah, but I think the same can be said of people of our time at times too. These verses reminded me of some in 2 Timothy as well. They say:
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires; and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths." 2 Timothy 4:3 & 4
