Have you ever wondered what the game of 'Simon Says' looks like from the ground-level?
Such a simple game, yet it reminds me of an important truth: our actions are the truest test of whether or not we're listening well. In other words, hearing alone isn't enough. We need to put what we hear into action.
As James wrote to the early Followers:
"Do not merely listen to the Word,
and so deceive yourselves.
Do what it says."
(James 1.22, New International Version)
