The Sweetest Song II
By Christy Tran
Coming back from the Sunday school, my four-year-old girl told me, “Mommy, did you know that your heart is the most beautiful thing in your body?”
God created our hearts so beautifully and mysteriously. He must think that is the most important part of a human being as He “looks at the heart” all the time. (1 Samuel 16:7)
Theologian Louis Berkhof commented, “In Scripture psychology the heart is the center and focus of the whole moral life of man, the personal organ of the soul… Religion has its seat in the heart…” (Louis Berkhof, Manual of Christian Doctrine)
As important as the heart is, the almighty and powerful God has not tried to control it. God gave us freedom so that we may choose what to fill it up with – faith or doubt; hope or despair; love or hatred.
The world may have so much to offer but when we fill our hearts with the eternal things above instead of earthly things (Colossians 3:2), we will have abounding joy as God has set eternity in the human heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
God’s most wonderful gift of all to us is His One and Only Son, Jesus. When we find Him and listen to Him, our hearts are truly set free. There is no better song that the world can offer. When we listen to Him, our hearts will keep singing, just like the Psalmist “I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.” (Psalms 104:33)
Listen and listen to the sweetest song of Jesus. Give Him your heart, not your hands or feet, because it is the place where He desires to be.
