But there are some actions (“apply…your ears”) I’ll need to work on, too. I used to think that spirituality centered on behaviors – I just needed to do better! But I just couldn’t make myself consistently do all these things.
My only hope was to initially change on the inside, like this verse suggests. The more we practice right thinking – which produces appropriate behaviors – the quicker and more supernaturally we can live differently and enjoy life to the full!
