Total Attention

I could think of no better way to start my 900th post with the following words of Jesus:
"Don't look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don't fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention" - Matthew 7:13-14 (The message)

None of us likes it when people ignore us when we speak - do we? Listening for the voice of God and then seeking to follow that voice requires our total attention.
A.W. Tozer - “Acquaint thyself with God.”
