Luke 8:8,18

8Some fell into good soil, and when it grew, it produced a hundredfold.’ As he said this, he called out, ‘Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’

18Then pay attention to how you listen; for to those who have, more will be given; and from those who do not have, even what they seem to have will be taken away.’

“The Noise” by Regina Spektor

All the power of my voice can’t compare

With the power of a quiet whisper

Still, it’s a choice, and I choose to rage

Instead of ever quietly listening

I can’t hear you… I can’t hear you anymore

I can’t hear you… I can’t hear you through this noise

I can’t hear you through the noise

All the power of my words can’t compare

With the power of a silent answer

Still, it’s a choice, and I choose to rage

Ignoring all those silent answers

I can’t hear you… I can’t hear you anymore

I can’t hear you… I can’t hear you through this noise

I can’t hear you through the noise

The noise

-Mark P.
