18 When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance 19 and said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.”
In our scripture today, we are reminded that there is a difference between hearing and listening. Hearing is simply the process of recognizing that there is sound. Listening is a process that we choose to take. What do you think of the difference between listening and hearing? Why do you think we often do not choose to listen to one another?
