WHAT’S IN YOUR HEART?

Yes, I love the nice attire that you wear. Yes, I am very fond of those new shoes that you just bought. Yes, the jewelry (real or costume) is simply adorable. All of these things are of beauty but I have one question: What about your heart? Is your heart one of beauty? A lot of rotten things can hide in the heart. No nice outfit, shoes, or jewelry can cover up what is in the heart. It comes out….eventually. If our hearts are not right, we should seek God to get our hearts right. When what is within us is “ugly”, it overrides what is on the outside. True beauty, of course, lies within. When you are beautiful inside, the beauty automatically shines on the outside and of course, you can dress it up as much as you please. Is God in your temple today? (S.L.M.)

1 Samuel 16:7 “But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
