“Quick, Honey,” I said, “get your shoes in the closet, and make sure the remote controls aren’t all over the place.”
The videographer from a local TV network affiliate was about to arrive. And the clips were to be used as part of my intro as I keynoted an event.
So I dashed around to and fro making sure the house was pretty tidy.
Crazy isn’t it? Why don’t I worry about cleaning my heart, my attitude, my habits and complaining tendencies instead?
That should be my priority as God doesn’t need a video camera. He’s already there sitting on the sofa of my heart. He’s observing where I put my faith. Where I tucked my trust. And how much joy I stored in this life of mine.
I made a decision—to make sure my heart is tidy “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him (II Chronicles 16:9).
Father, even though my life isn’t perfect, my flaws are evident, my weaknesses real, help me to have a heart that is perfectly clean for you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
