Matthew 1:24

"Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:"
Matthew 1:24

This verse makes me think about how sensitive we need to be to communication from God.  Joseph listened to what the angel told him in a dream, and it changed the course of his life.  That happened to other Josephs in the scriptures as well. :)  It has happened to many others, and it always matters... but think of the difference between Alma the younger and Laman, who both saw an angel, but who reacted very differently.  It is easy to lose that sensitivity and to start ignoring our spiritual feelings.  So many things in our lives can get in the way, if we let them.
Today, let's remember to put God first in our lives... to not let other things get in the way, especially our own pride.  Let's talk to God, and especially listen to God.  That communication is the most important thing that we have.  Let's read our scriptures, pray, and stay sensitive to the spirit... so that we never lose that link, and so that when those communications happen that can change our lives for the better, we're ready for them.
