LISTENING AND OBEDIENCE

I heard Henri Nouwen at Austin College several years ago. I remember what he said about listening and obedience. The word 'obedience,' he said, comes from the Latin obaudire, which means 'to hear.' By contrast the Latin word for 'deaf' is absurdus, from which we get our word 'absurd.' To truly hear Christ is to obey him; not to hear and obey is the way of absurdity in living.
