SHRINKING HEART

A child’s heart is full of vitality, adventure, and love however, as a child grows he/she is exposed to ‘life’. Life has the tendency to harden the hearts of good people. It’s neither good nor healthy for a heart to shrink or to become stony due to ‘life’ related issues. There is only one cure for a shrinking-stony heart; Jesus! Ezekiel 36:26 says, “And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.” In his Exposition of the entire bible John Gill said, “A “new heart” and a “new spirit” are one and the same; that is, a renewed one; renewed by the Spirit and grace of God; in which a new principle of life is put; will, filled with new purposes and resolutions; where new affections are placed, and new desires are formed; and where there are new delights and joys.” Look at the picture below. Which stage oflife was enjoyed the most?
