Selective Hearing Syndrome

Luke 6:27, 28 (NIV) “But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.”

As a child my mother would always tell me that I had developed SHS or “Selective Hearing Syndrome” as a 2 year old. I thought that the SHS had gone into remission by the time I was 21 because I had not heard the disease mentioned in reference to me for many years; until I got married at 29 and my wife right away recognized the symptoms. Whenever requests, demands, commands were being given to me I inadvertently (because of the disease) would pick and chose the more appealing tasks and would quickly and involuntarily (again because of this dreaded disease) forget the less attractive demands. I have learned to work with the disease over time, however it does flare up on occasion and I find myself once again hearing what I want to hear.

Many Christians suffer from SHS, especially when it comes to scripture. “Love your enemies” (except for James), “do good to those who hate you” (unless it is Sara), “bless those who curse you (yeah right), and “pray for those who mistreat you” (Uh really). I like tell Christians who suffer from SHS that “Jesus does not stutter”, He really said these things and really expects us (who are supposed to be able to “hear Me”) to live these commands. There is no place for Selective Hearing Syndrome if you claim to follow Jesus; His commands were given so that they would be obeyed and followed. “But I tell you who hear me; listen to Me”


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
