My son’s girlfriend had just arrived when the phone rang. The number looked vaguely familiar but I couldn’t place it and let the call go to the answering machine.

When I heard the voice, I didn’t pick up. I explained that each call with this person lasted two hours. Besides, I reasoned, I have company.

Before reading my Bible today, I asked God to direct my day.

1 Samuel 15:22, “. . . Obedience is better than sacrifice, a listening ear. . .” Modern English Version

I know obedience is important but I never realized it is equal to a listening ear. I have a call to make.

Dear Father God,

Thank You for always listening to me. Give me the words to speak when I make this call.

In Jesus Name,
