Chapter-a-Day Mark 5

It_has_an_off_buttonJesus overheard what they were talking about and said to the leader, "Don’t listen to them; just trust me."  Mark 5:36 (TM)

Voices. There are so many voices I hear each day. As time goes on, the sheer number of voices seem to rise exponentially. There are voices on my radio, voices on my iPod, voices on my television, voices in print, voices in my car, voices on the streets, voices in my client’s office, voices in my church and voices in my home. So many words come flying at me from all directions. It gets all confusing at times. There are so many mixed messages. There are so many messages eminating from mixed motives.

Jairus heard mixed messages. The voice of those telling him his worst fears came in one ear. The voice of Jesus telling him to trust filled the other. Jesus made it clear to Jairus that he had a choice.

"Don’t listen to them," Jesus said. 

I choose the voices to which I listen. I choose to read a chapter each day. I desire to choose wisely.
