During a long lecture, a speaker endured many interruptions from a man in the balcony who kept yelling, “Louder! Louder!”
After the fifth interruption, a gentleman in the first row stood up, looked back and asked, “Can’t you hear?”
“No, actually, I can’t hear,” came the answer from the balcony.
“Well, then, be thankful and shut up!”
We should be thankful that when we listen to Jesus we never have to worry about being bored. Jesus has the words of life that we should accept readily and gladly!
“The people were amazed at his teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the teachers of the law.”—Mark 1:22.
