Our memory verse this week reminds us man gets too preoccupied with the exterior of a person… while God focuses on the interior of a person.  God focuses on one’s heart.  My heart.  Your heart.

–  The Heart Is Our Intellect

See Gen. 6:5… the first time the word “heart” is used in the Bible.  It speaks of the thoughts of one’s heart.

When God looks into our heart, He can see what we think… what we REALLY think.

–  The Heart Is Our Emotions

See Gen. 6:6… the second time the word “heart” is used in the Bible.  It speaks of the feelings of one’s heart.

When God looks into our heart, He can see what we feel… what we REALLY feel.

–  The Heart Is Our Determination

See Gen. 8:21… the third time the word “heart” is used in the Bible.  It speaks of the will of one’s heart.

We refer to one as “having heart” as one who has a “strong will”.

When God looks into our heart, He can see what we focus on… what we are determined to do.

Agree with God… and get to the heart – YOUR heart – of the matter!
