Listening and hearing are not the same, yet they are not mutually exclusive.  The Israelites were to pray the Shema prayer found in Deuteronomy 6 at least twice a day every day as a reminder.  As a matter of fact, the first word of the Shema is “hear.”  And the word Shema is translated in English as “hear.”  In this short sermon, we study one aspect of the prayer, the word Shema and what it means to hear and obey.
