My little guy is currently going through an Elmo fascination!! He gets super excited when the Elmo's World theme begins to play, and runs as fast as he can into the living room so he doesn't miss a second! Elmo follows the exact same routine every day such as talking to Dorothy the fish, singing the same songs, and checking his e-mail. Watch this quick video in case you have never seen Elmo with his friend Mr. Noodle.......
Mr. Noodle obviously lacks some common sense, and depends on Elmo and the other kids to tell him what to do! It's got me thinking, though. What voices do we listen to in our own lives?
Every day, there are loud cries from the world telling us what to do!
Buy this or that!
Make more money!
Do what's best for YOU!
The list could go on and on! On the other hand, there is a quiet yet more powerful voice saying,
Lay up your treasures in Heaven!
I created you in My image!
Depend on ME!
We can choose between the world's empty yells or our God's all-sufficient whispers.
What Voice are you listening to today?
Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God...."
