As we consider our relationship to the world around us, we need to remember the goodness that is in our hearts. God has filled our hearts with His Word, love, and goodness. We have compassion and empathy. We need to protect our hearts from being drained by the sadness in the world. We can protect our hearts by returning to God through His Word and through prayer. We can also protect them by acting in God's love to foster more goodness and caring around us. As we guard our hearts and share God's love, the world can become a better place!
Guard your heart, but remember to share the love and compassion with which God has filled your heart!
Thank You for the love and compassion that You have poured into my heart. Please help me to guard my heart, to remember to return to You to keep it filled, and to share Your love and compassion with those around me. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
