Noise comes in a lot of forms. We typically think of noise as being an unwelcome loud sound that distracts or annoys us. A barking dog at midnight. The screeching of tires or a honking horn when walking down the street. A crying child on an airplane. However, the most distracting and annoying noises in our lives are sounds that we don't even notice. Words that someone says that hurt us. Music that doesn't edify us. Gossip or conversations that bring people down instead of lifting them up. Or the worst noise of all, the opinions of others that mislead us away from the Truth of God.
Lord, help me to be able to distinguish the noise of the world from the Truth that comes from You.
