The Heart of the Action

2 Chronicles 25:1-2 Amaziah was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem. (2) And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.

Here in the midst of so much kingship turmoil, we read of King Amaziah, king of the Southern Tribes of Judah. We read that his actions are right were they are supposed to be, but his heart is nowhere to be found.

I wonder how many Christians this describes today? They are doing the right actions - prayer, Bible reading, attending church, etc. - but their heart is not in it. Let's all take a moment and consider the heart of our actions.

  1. Jesus requires our heart: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. [Matthew 22:37 KJV]

    Our heart hold our treasures -- it needs to be with Christ!
