Please read Acts 28:23-31

How do you know when your heart has grown dull? (NRSV)

How do you know when your heart is calloused? (NIV) 

Do you think we know that we have grown dull and calloused? 

Maybe, sometimes we know it, but I think they are times when we have grown calloused and dull and we do not realize it.

So how do we know if we are the ones not seeing, not hearing, and not understanding? Many Jewish people that were experts in the law and in scriptures had a calloused heart. Jesus proclaimed that the Gentiles, those who did not have a full understanding of the law, or how God is supposed to act, would listen and respond.
