Let’s get to the heart of the issue.
The heart is the seat of your soul. It’s the place that guides your goals and dreams, daily decision making, and emotional reactions. We have the responsibility to guard what is allowed to influence our hearts, to keep our hearts soft and surrendered the Lord, and to have hearts that are steadfast and sure.
The bible says that while man looks at the outward appearance, God sees straight through to the heart. He sees us according to what is driving and motivating us from deep inside, so it’s important that we are aware of what is going on deep in our hearts too.
