Burnham: say “what?”

"What?" You know you've done it; we all have. You heard what was said and answered "What?" anyway. The problem is, we do this to God more often than we would like to admit. We hear God speak, but we act like we didn't. Sometimes it isn't so much that we are rejecting what God is saying as maybe who or what he is using to say it. He may use his word, or a child. He may use a friend or a sermon.
