  Pay Attention for Prosperity of Spirit, Soul, and Body

Luke 8:18, Therefore take heed how you hear. For whoever has [faithful hearing], to him more will be given; and whoever does not have, even what he seems to have will be taken from him.

In His discourse about parables, Jesus taught that it is essential to pay attention to how we hear. On many occasions Jesus said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”

We have all had the experience of listening to someone talk, or listening to instructions, but not paying attention. A lack of attention leads to poor performance on examinations, improper handling of equipment, missed appointments, and more. Listening and paying attention pays dividends!

Last spring, I had a diagnosis of arthritis in my back. It was not severe or debilitating, but very uncomfortable. My doctor prescribed therapy. This was something I DID NOT want to do since it didn't make sense. I was thinking, "Moving my back makes it hurt!"

However, I trusted the expertise of my physical therapist, paid attention to the instructions, and did the things I was asked to do. All of the insights and movements were beyond my understanding. Over a period of three months my back pain dramatically improved! The prescribed movements released natural lubrication and developed muscles related to my spine. A lack of lubrication and a lack of muscle development is one of the effects of arthritis.

When Jesus said "for whoever has," I believe He talked about having faithful hearing. The apostle Paul wrote, "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)

As you consider your future life of prosperity of spirit, soul, and body, remember Jesus' words and make it your aim to pay attention, faithfully hear, and take action based on what you hear. The outcome to faithful hearing is "more will be given." The outcomes of failing to pay attention are not acceptable, "Even what he seems to have will be taken from him."

Thank you for participating in this 21-Day Firm Foundation devotional and I thank the contributors who wrote lessons.

I pray you will continue seeking the Lord day by day, growing day by day, and prospering in all things just as your soul prospers!
