WEEKLY REFLECTIONS
 
What Are You Talking About?
Over 20 years ago, Leigh and I were on vacation one summer with my parents and my sister and brother-in-law in the Smokey Mountains.  I remember some of the fun things we all did on that trip, some of the hikes we went on, and some places we ate.  My most last memory of that trip is not a good memory at all.  For all the fun that was had, I remember the pain more than anything.  In fact, I’m reminded of that pain all day every day.  While on that trip, my left ear developed some kind of nasty infection.  I remember getting medicine for the infection, but it wasn’t until several years later that I got a better diagnosis of what cause the infection and pain in the first place.  A small tumor developed in my middle ear, which is where all the bones exists to help you hear, and surgery a few months later meant that I had the tumor and the bones removed.  Which meant only one thing.  Without a second surgery, I wouldn’t be able to hear well out of that ear.  As a result, I can either wear a hearing aide, which I own but rarely wear, or I can say “Huh?” a lot!  So, make sure you speak into my right ear, which is the “good one!”Because I care about what people say to me, I want to hear them.  I want to know how someone feels, what they’re thinking and know any insight they have.  It’s a real nuisance not to be able to hear well, especially when someone has something good to say!  Many people who have no relationship with Jesus need to hear what you have to say about Him.  They need to know how He has saved you, changed you, and sticks with you no matter what.  They may be spiritually hard of hearing, spiritual deaf, or eager to hear.  Regardless, speak up and speak clearly about who Jesus is, and those who have ears to hear will hear!
