When Jesus said, God knows your heart – He was speaking to the Pharisees, men who lived double lives.

Outwardly, they sought public approval – they made a point of following all the religious rules and worked hard to impress people so that they would appear to be godly and wise.

However, God knew their hearts – He saw through their displays to what was on the inside.

Think about it – Jesus Himself taught and showed that genuine followers obey God and His Word rather than pay tribute to those things the world values – like some sort of status or something. I personally don’t get it.

He called out these religious leaders for their greed, self-indulgence, and hypocriticalness – and yes sweet friends – we can rest assure that the challenge to these leaders and us as believers today is exactly the same today.

So yes, we stay mindful not to honor the Him with our lips while our hearts are far from Him . We need to focus on cleaning up the inside of our own spiritual houses, dealing with our own attitudes and our own motives.

When we do this – our moral and spiritual character will automatically be revealed on the outside.

It’s in our quiet humble heart that we find Love.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart’” 1 Samuel 17:7
