GIVE YOUR HEART TO GOD
As believers, we need to love the Lord with all our hearts, souls, and minds. We cannot love the Lord halfheartedly. We must have a heart full of love for God, because He has been so good to us! He is so great and glorious to us. We can express our gratitude to God with a heart filled with praise. He is the center of our lives, and our hearts should be filled with thanksgiving and praise. Do not love Him halfheartedly. Love with your entire heart open to God and give Him praise for all that He has done! In Proverbs 23:26, we find these words:
“O my son, give me your heart. May your eyes take delight in following my ways.”
This chapter speaks about the need to “listen to your father who gave you life. Do not despise your mother when she is old.” It continues, saying, “Listen and be wise: Keep your heart on the right course.” Our hearts should be open to our parents, and they should also be open to God. We should take delight in honoring God by serving Him and following His ways. The Word says, “My child, if your heart is wise, my own heart will rejoice!” God is pleased when the heart of a child is open to parents because that same heart will be open to Him. In the same way, each of us needs to make sure that we give our whole heart to God.
