Are You Ready to Listen?

Sunday morning is coming soon. Are you ready to hear the word of God? Listen to Spurgeon about the importance of preparing to listen to God's word:

We are told men ought not to preach without preparation. Granted. But we add, men ought not to hear without preparation. Which, do you think needs the most preparation, the sower or the ground? I would have the sower come with clean hands, but I would have the ground well-plowed and harrowed, well-turned over, and the clods broken before the seed comes in. It seems to me that there is more preparation needed by the ground than by the sower, more by the hearer than by the preacher.

Cited in Ken Ramey, Expository Listening, (Woodlands, Texas: Kress Biblical Resources, 2010), 34.

I reserve the right to remove / abridge comments which are (1) too long (no blog posts please); (2) off topic (again.); or (3) mean-spirited (feel free to disagree, but do so graciously). That is all. Thank you for reading and comment away!
