HEAR:Notice how Jesus responded to pressure. Nearly ignored it. Many have speculated on what he wrote on the ground. I cannot speculate on that right now. Because what's more important is what the text says, not what it doesn't say. One day Oral Roberts and Jerry Savelle had a meeting with a high ranking official in Africa. Jerry was speaking with the Official and listening to him also. Oral was doodling on a napkin. He'd wad it up and throw it aside and start doodling again. Finally after having gone through several he tapped Jerry and said "Hey look at this"... Jerry thought it was a little rude to interrupt the Official but out of respect he looked at it.
STREBOR LAROOral said, "You know what that it?" Jerry said "I have no idea what that is." Oral said: "It's 'Oral Roberts' spelled backwards." Jerry said, "Oral are we boring you?" Oral said, "YES! You are all thinking to small!" and with that he laid out a bigger vision and the Official and Jerry got excited and the government there gave them a bunch of land to do it on.
The point is, that Jesus didn't give in to pressure or situations. He didn't get disturbed by others lack of vision. He simply ignored it and gave the only response he HEARD the Father tell him to give.
I'm going to spend more time listening today, and less time talking. I'm going to try to ONLY say what the Father says.
