The story is told about a reporter who was obsessed with talking to military men who had been hit by enemy fire. He always asked, ” Did you hear the bullet coming? What kind of noise did it make? Did you know you were about to be hit?”
Then came the day when he was caught in a firefight and was wounded. His last words to those standing nearby were, “I never heard a thing!”
That is exactly the way it is with some of us. We are looking for a great experience, a vision, some calling or grand revelation.
But somehow in all the fanfare we never quite hear. We are busy looking for stuff….things….events.
God forbid that we should suffer a mortal wound and only be able to say, “I never heard a thing.”
