I recently realized that pride makes a person hard of hearing. It takes humility to hear from God, or to hear – really hear – from anyone else, too.
I will boast in the Lord; the humble will hear and be glad.
Are you aware of any humble atheists? Possibly they exist. The ones of whom I am aware do not come across that way. As all people are worshipers, those who ignore God usually worship themselves. That is essentially pride, is it not?
If I am not hearing from God, maybe my heart needs examination. The humble can hear. Jesus said that unless I become as a child, I cannot enter the Kingdom of heaven.
Intellectual pride has undoubtedly caused significant deafness.
There isn’t a hearing aid you can buy that will fix it.
