One of the things that really bothers me is being ignored. I think I would rather be insulted than ignored. But it dawned on me, just today – do I ignore God? When I feel a clear nudge to do something, when I disregard a clear warning, when I deliberately go my way instead of “taking up the cross,” surely that constitutes ignoring God.
That’s really sad, and cheeky. Realizing this makes me want to try harder to pay attention, and not just hear the word but also obey it: carefully, faithfully, and gladly. Please, dear God, help us not to ignore you.
