To ignore is to pay no attention to; to allow a glimpse or word to go in one ear and out the other; to look the other way or go about your business while someone or something is trying to attract you (Judges 11:28). At times it is good to ignore others because they are bringing something not good for you. But at other times, people have made serious mistakes because they ignore something they should have given their attention to. For example, one can ignore the guys approaching from across the street and be robbed by them. One can ignore the stop sign because of talking on a cell phone and be involved in a crash. One can ignore the concerns of a spouse and lose that person by being insensitive.
So not paying attention can be deadly, and the worst thing is to ignore God when He speaks through the teaching of His word (John 12:48, Proverbs 29:1, Prov. 1:20–33; Hebrews 2:1; Genesis 19:14; Jeremiah 6:10, 16–17.
