It’s easy to be misheard, misunderstood, and misquoted. One example is misheard lyrics. They seem to be a common occurrence. I have a friend who does an after school bible program for kids. This week a little boy said, “I can’t get that christmas song out of my head!” “Which one?” she said. “You know the one that is different languages and it's about a flappy dog with fleas…” “I don’t know that one,” she said. “Sing it for me.”
He began, “Fleas, flappy dog, fleas flappy dog…” (Feliz Navidad)
Our mind tends to hear what it what’s to hear. Perhaps the very reason Jesus sets the example for us to spend quiet time with God.
For the resounding of the Spirit is a sound loud enough to echo. Listen closely so you echo the right words.
“Let me hear what God the Lord will speak, for He will speak peace to his people…” Psalm 85:8
