Luke 8:1-21
In Luke 8:18 Jesus warns the listener, “Take care then how you year, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.” Jesus places a high priority on the role of the listener when God’s Word is proclaimed. In fact, Jesus links one’s hearing (or receiving) God’s Word to the condition of the heart. In this passage we learn of three commonly wrong conditions of the human heart and one right condition necessary to hear God’s Word.
