You have control over what you say but you don’t have control over what people hear.
You Want Proof?
OK, sing along this popular track by Boyz II Men entitled ‘End of the road’
Although we’ve come to the end of the road
Still I can’t let you go
It’s unnatural, you belong to me, I belong to you
(Gotcha! Well, some of you.)
How many of us including myself have sung the lyrics of this song and other songs wrongly, and yet with so much conviction and confidence? 🎶IT’S SO NATURAL🎶 instead of 🎶 IT’S UNNATURAL🎶 . Sung even with our eyes closed 😁.
This is just one in a million examples of how people choose to hear what they want to hear and not necessarily what was said or spoken. They tell themselves this is what is being said and yet the speaker is saying something else.
What have you been hearing when people have been speaking? Of what God has said what have you heard?
Food For Thought: I know what I’ve said but I don’t know what you have heard.
