And the great throng heard him gladly. (Mark 12:37 ESV)
We have a choice. Every day. We can invest time into our spiritual life and into a relationship with God. We can open up the Holy Bible and see what God has to say to us. We can have an attitude that is prepared to listen and learn. Or, we can choose none of those things. As we study Mark 12:35-44 this week I have a challenge for you and I. Will you listen to what God has to say to you and hear Him gladly? This is what the masses did in Mark 12:37 during the final days of the Lord Jesus’ earthly ministry. When He spoke, they heard Him. When they heard Him it wasn’t with frustration or disappointment. It was with gladness. That is a choice.
To hear and be glad is my prayer for you as you read and study and devote time to God this week!
