1 Samuel 16:1-13
“The heart is used as a metaphor for the seat of our most basic orientation, our deepest commitments — what we trust the most (Proverbs 3:5; 23:26); it is what we most love and hope in, what we most treasure, what captures our imagination (Matthew 6:21). Every heart has an inclination (Genesis 6:5), something it is directed toward. The direction of the heart, then, controls everything — our thinking, feeling, and decisions and actions. What we most love we find reasonable, desirable, and doable. Whatever we cherish in our hearts most controls the whole person. No wonder Jesus is so concerned about our hearts. No wonder God ignores outward matters and looks supremely at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7).” – Tim Keller, article “The Revolutionary Christian Heart”
The Life of David – Kingdom Come: God is alive and active in your life, but do you see it? God wants to use you in mighty ways for His Kingdom, but do you see it?

This is a Kingdom that is here and now, active in our lives, families, workplaces, community, and church. Let’s set our eyes back to God’s Kingdom vision, on earth as it is in Heaven.
