Learning to listen


Walking with Jesus / Monday, March 26th, 2012

Confession: I don’t read enough Scripture.

I could say I’m a busy mom, what do I expect? but it wasn’t easier before the kids. I find I have to overcome not just a physical hurdle (getting to a quiet corner), but a mental one. There are always a thousand objections to doing what I ought.

Did you know you can listen to the New Testament, King James Version, as a free audio book from the internet? I just discovered this last week. The site I like is www.freeclassicaudiobooks.com. You can choose the book you want, and skip tracks to the chapter you want. The voice is good, not Alexander Scourby, but not distracting either. Now instead of Simon & Garfunkel on Pandora, I can drink God’s word while I am doing household jobs—washing dishes, ironing shirts.

I love it. I’m through 1 Corinthians after just a few sessions, and into second. When I find a chapter I really need I listen to it twice.

Try it?
