Where is your heart? No, I don’t mean nestled beneath your sternum somewhere between your lungs and whatever is over on the other side. Not that heart. You know! Your heart. The metaphysical linchpin of your soul that drives your desires, captains your cares, and pushes your passions.
Where is it? Where does it lay? Where does it stop? Where does it rest? Where does it ache for, hurt for, beat for?
Stop and think about the answer for just a moment. Now check out what Jesus had to say in Matthew chapter six.
It’s obvious, isn’t it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being. (Matthew 6:21 MSG)
So, does where you initially thought that your heart was actually line up with where you are—with where you spend your time. If not then maybe it’s time to give that discrepancy some careful examination. Perhaps there is an absolutely legitimate reason (you know, like a time consuming career) why the two would be different. Or, it could be that where you think your heart is, and where it actually is, is not quite in line. But that’s an easy fix. Knowing really is half the battle. And if there is a difference there that you’re not crazy about ask God to help.
Jesus was the answer to where God’s heart is. He treasures us—and so he came to be with us.
