People honor me with their lips but their hearts are far from me. Mark 7:7
This quote is very challenging for the faithful person. However, it is helpful to read this quote, which Jesus took from the Prophet Isaiah. Jesus was speaking to the religious leadership of His day but we are the religious leaders of today and we must take Jesus seriously!
Each one of us is called to live lives that bring people to the Lord!
How are our hearts? Do they mirror the Heart of Jesus or are they hearts of the world?
It is a wonderful custom to examine our day before we go to bed. An important question we could asks ourselves is: where was our hearts today? Did our action show that our hearts belong and follow Jesus? The more we are honest with ourselves, the more Christlike we can become.
