An Undivided Heart

Friday night we talked about having an undivided heart.

In Matthew 22:37 Jesus told us the greatest command is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind and all our strength. When we love the Lord with our whole heart we are undivided. A major benefit of loving Him with our whole heart is that we will live life with balance. An undivided heart keeps us balanced in every area of our lives: relationships, thoughts, and activities.

A balanced life is also a source of protection from frustrations, worries and the anxieties that try to encircle us. The balance of the Lord will reach into our relationships and will dictate how we spend our time and where our energies go, as we set our affections on Him. Our Lord loves us so much and He knows the benefits we gain when we give Him our undivided hearts!
