The Baseline is a Wholeheart

My readings today took me to three people who all had the same problem.

King Amaziah of Judah. 2 Chronicles 25 v 2 says: "He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, but not wholeheartedly."

Then I read in Acts 5 about a couple called Ananias and Sapphira who likewise served God but not with there whole heart by keeping money back they had pledged to give to God for which the died.

I serve God but is it really with my whole heart or do I hold back and hold out.

Sometimes I'd rather watch TV than speak to him.
Sometimes I'd rather talk about what he has told me than do it.
Sometimes I'd rather spend money on me than give it to his kingdom.
Sometimes its more about me than about Him.

“God's calling for a whole heart. Those are his terms. There's no compromise. Go after him. It's worth everything on that day.” - Bill Mc Cartney
