But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therin, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. James 1:25
The Hebrew word for "hear" is shama. Which is translated~to hear intelligently with an implication of attention and obedience. To obey and to be obedient are included in the meanings. So hearing isn't just hearing~hearing means taking action and obeying what you heard. Father, help us to truly hear (shama) Your instructions.
