Jesus challenges us to have our heart in the right place with God and everyone else. It is all about our relationships. Just saying the right thing will not make a difference. Jesus demands that our heart be in it. Jesus knows that if our heart is in it, the results will come.
It isn’t the “big show” we make of saying things. Do we do the right God-things? Is our heart in it even if no one knows about what we do?
God’s goal for us is for us to guard our heart. Intent is important. Everything starts with our heart. God wants men and women of God who have a heart for Jesus.
May my heart be in it every day!!
“These people make a big show of saying the right thing, but their heart isn’t in it.” ~Jesus (Mark 7:6)
