How many times have you been on the hunt for something, and due to your lack of not putting things where they belong, could not find the item needed? Any hands out there?? Mine shot up before I even finished typing that sentence! Mercy!
All of this to say that our hearts can become cluttered just like our closets, our mini vans, our garages. Today in our Bible study, our teacher shared some insights as to this matter. We are studying With All Your Heart by Brenda Blankenship which is based on The Beatitudes and the Fruit of the Spirit. It's an amazing study that ties these together. I want to highlight a few points from today and get your opinions.
- Our hearts can become cluttered just like out closets. If they stay too cluttered, we tend to forget the sight and sound and fragrance of Jesus. We're too busy to spend time with Him. There's no room in our hearts for His presence.
- We must learn to make Jesus the center of our attention, the focal point of all we do, the object of our concentration if we want to maintain a healthy heart.
Running to Him now for some de-cluttering!
