Soon after becoming a Christian I joined a couples Bible study with my wife. One night I had what (I thought) was a terrific insight, but I figured nobody would be interested because, after all, I was a baby.
So, I said, “As Billy Graham said…” and then proceeded to give them my thought. After everyone nodded approvingly, I said, “Actually, Billy Graham didn’t say that but I didn’t think you would want to hear it if it was just from me.”
It IS hard to be heard. There is a LOT of competition for people’s attention. And people are suspicious of the new guy. Since that night I have put together…well, let’s call it a “philosophy of being heard.”
