Reading: 2 Chronicles 24-26; 2 Corinthians 11:1-15
“He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD, but not wholeheartedly” (2 Chronicles 25:2 NIV).
Amaziah King of Judah did what was right, but not with all of his heart. He knew the rules, he knew how to play the game, but his heart wasn’t in it. How many Christians have I meant like that? How many Christians know how to say the right words, act the right way, but don’t feel it deep inside? I really don’t have an answer to that. And I’m not here to cast stones. Instead, I’m here to look at my own life and ask if I have always lived my life wholeheartedly for God. I hope I have. I hope that others see that this life I live isn’t just an outward act, but an inward love. I hope they see that I truly love God wholeheartedly, with all that I am. I hope that see all of this.
What does the word “wholeheartedly” mean to you?
