In Your Own Eyes

We each live in our own frame of reference. What I mean by “frame of reference” is that our particular view in daily life is greatly influenced and formed by our personal experiences and circumstances. You cannot see through my eyes, and I cannot see through yours. That’s not a complaint, it’s simply a reality. I have borders and boundaries just like you. We should not trespass!

Let me make it very clear, I am not referring to the absolutes which are found in scripture. There are Biblical truths that apply to every single person who is reading this post. So please do not twist or distort my words to justify your particular life choices that are in direct opposition to God’s holy word. We each have the responsibility to read, study, obey, and apply the word of God.

What I’m specifically referring to is the God given differences we each have. Although things change throughout our life, like it or not our personal history has created some “borders” that are unique. In other words, my life is unique compared to your life. And our particular disposition in life is based on those specific realities. Some individuals have been blessed with great health. Others live with daily illness. Some individuals have financial stability. Others cannot meet there basic needs. Some have sharp and witty minds, others are dull and mentally challenged. Some have nice homes and nice vehicles, others do not. I could go on and on but I think you get the point. People are different. Some sail, others sink. Some laugh, others weep. Some are joyful, some grieve. Some are on the mountaintop, others are in the valley.

Heart of the Matter is “A Biblical inquiry into the nature of the heart”.

The Heart – Lesson One – The Introduction

Knowledge of the Lord God of the Bible is the most important thing that anyone, especially Christians, can learn. Knowledge of the Scriptures – God’s words (The Holy Bible) is essential in order for us to not only learn about God but know Him personally.  Knowledge of the human heart closely follows in order of importance.

Human nature is a reflection of mankind’s heart condition. The major pursuits of mankind: Self-preservation, self-propagation and self-gratification are all bound up in the heart. When it comes to understanding ourselves and others, knowledge of the heart is indispensable. Since the issues of life proceed from out of the heart (Proverbs 4:23) it is extremely important that we examine the Scriptures (God’s own words – from God’s Mouth) to see what God has to say about it.
