Every Christmas Kari and I watch the old Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire flick, “Holiday Inn.” If you’re not familiar with the story line, it’s about an entertainer who is tired of the busy lifestyle and buys an old farm in Vermont where he decides to open it up only on the holidays with specific music written for that day. In the process, he meets a girl who captures his heart, and he writes a song for Valentine's Day with the line, “be careful, it’s my heart.” He had been hurt in the past by other women, and now he wanted to express how fragile his heart was to his new love. Our hearts are fragile, aren’t they? They’re the center of our being, and God’s desire is to have them above all else. He doesn’t care about what kind of sacrifices you bring to him (that’s external)… He cares about your heart (that's internal). That’s what led King David to write, “create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit in me.” How is your heart? Are there grudges you’re holding? Do you need forgiveness for something? Have you hurt someone? Part of having a clean heart is taking care of those things. Remember that your heart matters more than anything. So be careful… it’s your heart.
