A Matter of the Heart

God’s Word about our heart as found in scripture

Quite a few years ago, I crossed paths often with this particular lady who always said to me “God bless your heart.” A common phrase, but the more she said it, the more I began to wonder what it “really” meant. Why did my heart need blessing so much? So I decided to do a Bible study on the word “heart.” Wow, did I find many references to it in the Bible, many of which are common phrases in our language.

Take a moment to go through this list. All of these phrases are from scripture. Read each line and then pause and reflect on its meaning. I know I learned a lot by this exercise, I hope you do to.

Take a moment to leave a comment about what you've learned.

I thought in my heart
hasty in your heart
for the one my heart loves
you have stolen my heart
my heart sank
sick at heart
pour out your heart
attitudes of the heart
