One of the things we do the quickest is judge people’s hearts.
“I know them”
“I know who they really are”
At times there might be truth in those statements, but, honestly, truthfully, knowing a person’s heart is really only for God.
Ok, let’s flip this beast…..
Do we really know our own heart’s motivations?
“The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
We so quickly want to assume (we know what that means), we know what others’ motives are without truthfully finding out our own reasons for doing what we do.
God judges the heart, not the actions.
We as humans usually judge the actions, and not the heart.
One of the scariest things I have ever done was ask God to truly show me my own heart. We think we know why we do what we do, but in reality, we even can deceive ourselves.
Why do we not like so and so?
Why do I do the job I do?
Why are we really offended?
Why do I do the ministry I do?
Why do I go to church?
Why do I wear the clothes I wear?
We are driven by self-motivation, self-preservation, self-gratification, when we are to be motivated as a servant.
We can say we know why, but, without asking God to reveal our hearts, we can easily lie to ourselves to satisfy the flesh and subconscious.
TODAY – ASK GOD TO REVEAL YOUR HEART!
Hang on because it can get ugly when we actually see how impure our motives really are!
