What has your attention?

Have you ever been so wrapped up in a TV show, a book, or a project that you completely ignore someone (your spouse or child) who asks you an important question or requests help? You kind of heard them, but you were just too captivated by something else. I know I have done this too many times.

Sometimes I find out that I missed out on a critical conversation or I really let someone down or I was left out of all of the fun. I think most of the time I never knew just what amazing opportunities I passed by. Has this ever happened to you?

Have we ever done this to God? Do we sometimes get so busy and wrapped up in the minutia of life that we blow off the call of God? What have we missed out on?

It is one thing to hear the voice of God and yet another thing to sit up, pay attention, and respond to it.
