Proverbs 1:24 (MSG)
As it is, I've called, but you've turned a deaf ear; I've reached out to you, but you've ignored me.
The phone rings. I hear it, but my family is just sitting down to dinner....
or I am in a conversation with a sweet friend who stopped by for a visit. So, if you were here, you would hear me say, "Let that go....we'll call them back as soon as we're done."
I wonder how many times I have done this to the Lord. Hmmm....way more than I would like to confess....ouch. My prayer today is that my heart would be so sensitive to Him that I would NEVER put the Lord on hold.....that I would never ignore His call or His extended hand.
