One mouth and two ears is a picture you can see without much thought. Does it mean twice as much listening as speaking? I belong to a Toastmasters group and there is a strong emphasis on developing listening skills. Sometimes we can hear but we’re not really listening. No matter how loud the sound, we miss the information.
I have been developing web content online for over 20 years and know my way around. So when my wife and cousin told me one of my sites wasn’t user friendly I thought it was their problem. I heard what they said, then I listened.
Why would Jesus repeatedly say “them that have ears let them hear”. Was he trying to have you block out the noise and really listen to his words. The answer is yes. The world is full of noise and we can get real busy listening to the noise and not hear the word of God.
Matthew 11:28 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
