Ears and Eyes: Faculties to Learn about God

Proverbs 20:12

“The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.”

God wonderfully made our bodies. The faculties of our body are graciously given by our God, the Creator. We must be indebted to God for the well-functioning bodies that He has given us.

God gave us ears, that we may hear His glorious truths. He gave us eyes, that we may see His great works. The ears and eyes are given to us, that we may know the Lord and appreciate His greatness and goodness.

Our souls learn of God through our ears and eyes. Let us therefore use those faculties to learn about God.

Listen to God’s Word, eagerly and attentively.
Read God’s Word, diligently and regularly.
Use your God-given faculties joyfully and faithfully.
