God keeps speaking to us, and we have a daily opportunity to listen and take the message to heart. A couple of points to remember:
- Sometimes we are biased toward the message
- Sometimes we are biased toward the messenger
May we listen to the Lord - and allow both the message and the messager to touch us and help us grow.
