Chapter-a-Day Job 17

Many voices. So far I haven't come across one scrap of wisdom in anything you've said. Job 17:11 (MSG)

Voices. There are so many voices. In my work I meet so many people and read what so many other people have to say. Then there are voices at home, voices on the television, voices on radio, voices at church, voices in the community, voices on Facebook, voices on YouTube, and voices on my iPod.

Are the voices building me up?

Are the voices worth my time and energy?

Are they voices of wisdom?

Jesus always told the crowds "he who has ears to hear, let him hear." God, help my ears be good filters. Help them to hear wisdom and filter out the rest.
