Listen to our heart
 
Listen to our heart
Is it a suitable SANCTUARY for the LORD? 
Does our heart overflow with a stream of LIVING-WATER?
Does LOVE, COMPASSION, HUMILITY, PEACE define our heart?
Is it truly the LORD WHO DWELLS there!
OR is our heart the pedestal for  SELF-LOVE and SELF-INTEREST!
Does PRIDE, ENVY, GREED, HATE, LUST rule there?
Does ANGER, DISILLUSIONMENT, DECEIT trouble our heart? 
Has our heart become the abode of cynicism, apathy, callousness?
The embodiment of misery!
 
Does our heart reverberate with praise and adoration
Of our LOVING and GRACIOUS LORD? 
Or does it resound with noisy cymbals of Self-praise, Self-pity, Self-deception?
O let us honestly examine our heart-motives,
Let us examine our heart-values!
For our ALMIGHTY, HOLY, RIGHTEOUS LORD judges us
On the condition of our heart!
In Humility, let us ask for forgiveness,
Remembering HIS MERCY never ends, HIS LOVING KINDNESS 
Endures forever!
