Did They Not Hear?

Did they not hear? Of course they did:
“Their voice has gone out into all the earth,
   their words to the ends of the world.” 
Romans 10:18

Of course we did.

But we are listening-impaired, choosing what to hear and what to ignore.

The sound of salvation has gone out into all the land,
resonating and echoing in each human ear,
ready to settle in each human heart.

But we clap our hands over our ears as if deaf.

The words are plainspoken for all to understand yet we fail to discern.
We poke holes, fuss over meaning, walk away from their call.

Did they not hear?

Of course we did.
