We are today, more than in any other day a people with divided hearts. There are a multitude of events, duties, needs and wants all vying for a place in our attentions. And we are failing in even beginning to meet the clamour and fulfill all that tugs on our hearts.
The Psalmist had it right – “give me an undivided heart” – one that has a single desire: God. All else will be properly met when we purely and simply seek only Him.
Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart to revere your name. – Psalm 86:11
