The 7th Year-Week 10: Word Cloud

"A word heard is not enough." According to the Parable of the Sower, the difference "in the fourth soil/soul was that beyond hearing, it accepted the Word." (Chole, referring to Mark 4:20) 

A verse memorized is not enough. 
A service attended is not enough. 
A behavior modified is not enough. 
A list of rules followed is not enough. 

This concept has struck me deeply this week because I know so many people that know truths found in the Bible, yet aren't applying it. Some are ignoring it. Some are connecting it with hurtful people and trying to forget it. Some are just choosing an "easier" path. None of us get it right all the time, I get that. But my heart breaks for people that know and turn away...never applying the grace, mercy, forgiveness, healing, truth found in the same passages they memorized as a child. 

 "God, I think you are_____."
