Like a Basketball off of a Backboard is His Word to Our Hearts

We reveal our natural hostility toward God by the low esteem we have for Him.  We consider Him unworthy of our total devotion.  We take no delight in contemplating Him.  Even for the Christian, worship is often difficult and prayer a burdensome duty.  Our natural tendency is to flee as far as possible from His presence.  His Word rebounds from our minds like a basketball from a backboard.
