This is probably why The Punisher was always my favorite comic book character.
There is no wisdom, understanding, or advice
that can succeed against the LORD.
Hearing the word of God and not receiving it, not acting on it, is pointless. Much like a lamp for light being covered. It’s purpose is to give light.
Being touched by the Spirit, you will bear fruit of it.
You will shine forth God to others and they will be affected by it.
“Consider carefully how you listen.”
“Receptive and obedient listening will lead to increased understanding, but rejection of the truth will lead to increased incomprehension of the word of God.”
