Care and Feeding of the Heart
“I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws” (Psalm 119:30)
“For me, the heart of Adam, as yet unblemished by sin, surpasses in beauty any of the amazing array of wonders God had spoken into existence before Adam’s creation. When God had finished creating all these other things, he pronounced his creation “good;” after he formed and animated Adam, God declared his creation “very good.” The emphasis in the Hebrew is intentional: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, could not have been more pleased” (John Dozier, “The Weeping, the Window, the Way”)!
The care and feeding of your heart and mine must begin by believing our hearts were made by a God of LOVE and TRUTH. And therefore, it is sustained by LOVE and TRUTH. The Psalmist’s bold, yet humble claim should be our wake up call at the beginning of each day: “I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws”!!
Gobbling up hatred and bitterness or falsehood and deception of any kind as sustenance for the heart… is what? Killer, right?!
Know the Truth and Love of God. It will set you and me free… Free At Last!
