Men often do not see the obvious. I read that is one of our characteristics. We don't multi-task well. We don't listen well. We don't ask for directions. And, we don't see things that are right in front of our noses.
I can't tell you the number of times I have called Wanda to get her to help me find something, only to find in right in front of my face. Ha! I'm not sure what the problem is, but I don't think I'm the only one.
Women do it too.
Just ask Wanda.
Recently we were sitting together on the beach enjoying the ocean. She had her I-Phone and wanted to listen to her music. She tried and tried to get it to play, but it wouldn't work. Finally, she turned to me for help. I looked for a moment and quickly saw the problem. Her earplugs were in her lap and not in her ears! Ha!
It is hard to listen to music on an I-Phone if the earplugs are not in your ears!
All of us have that problem from time to time. We miss the obvious, the most important, the most evident and clearest. That happens over and over spiritually.
God's Word speaks clearly about every issue of life, but people miss it over and over. I think the problem is kind of like Wanda's problem with not hearing the music. They don't have their spiritual earplugs in. They're not listening. God is speaking but no one is paying attention.
May God help me today to open my eyes, my ears, and my heart and hear what He is saying and where He is leading. Then all will go well.
