To Hear God, We Must Listen

A Christian Science Sunday School teacher told her class how Joseph, warned of the danger King Herod's decree held for the infant Christ Jesus, fled with his little family into Egypt. A seven-year-old asked, "Why didn't God tell the other people that soldiers would be coming, so they could have saved the other babies too?" Another child immediately replied, "He did tell them. He was telling them all the time. They just weren't listening."

They weren't listening! Through the years since that Sunday morning the truth of the child's answer has been a warning guide to the teacher. In a world where every hour seems to be filled with a cacophony of conflicting voices, she has often asked herself, "Am I listening to God?"
