“…for they hear your words, but they do not do them.” – Ezekiel 33:32
In a dense forest there was a big tree. In its beautiful colorful parrots come and sit and play on flirting to each other. Knowing this, the hunter caught those birds and earned by selling them in the market. On seeing this one elder man thought if such crucial things happen there won’t be any parrot left in the tree, every day he went to the parrots and taught, “Hunter will come, will spread the net, and sprinkle the seeds, but we will not be caught in trap” and made them to repeat these sayings. Those parrots talked very beautifully.
After the money is exhausted the hunter came again to catch the parrots. The parrots started to repeat, “Hunter will come, will spread the net, and sprinkle the seeds, but we will not be caught in trap”. On hearing this hunter thinking that he can’t catch he got tired. But to see if the parrots will do what they tell, the hunter spread the net and sprinkled the seeds. Those parrots repeated the elder man’s trainings of, “Hunter will come, will spread the net, and sprinkle the seeds, but we will not be caught in trap” and sat on the net to eat the seeds and were trapped. That hunter now sold those parrots to higher rate, because they became the talking parrots.
Thus, we hear the God’s verse and also share to others, but we don’t activate. Just like that elder man was more concern towards the parrots, our heavenly father teaches us many truths to save us not to be trapped in the hands of Satan, we fail activate the truth.
In the scripture youth Samson, knew the scriptural truths. He knew the God’s plan for him. He felt the mighty power of Holy Spirit in his body. Though he knew all truths he had fallen into the trap of lusts of his own and spoiled his life. Friends! Like Samson having known about God and the scripture. Are we disliked to obey the truth to own the blessings and walking in the ways of the wayward/vagabond? Are we so like Samson? Let us think a while. Not merely hearing the words of God, but be obeying to the truth.
