A New Year is before us. What your heart is focused on is eternally important. Jesus said, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:21). Are you passionate to have a heart like Jesus, and to focus on what He was focused on? A heart like Jesus is a pure heart. “Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). Purity of heart requires patience, decency, and discretion. A heart like Jesus is meek and humble. “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:29). Christians must take heart or take courage (John 16:33). Life has difficulties and where you heart is will determine your reaction. A strong spiritual heart will get you through life and prepare you to be with God eternally. Is your heart right with God and loving toward man?
