This was an interesting text:
2 Chronicles 25:2.
Amaziah kept God's commandments and did the right things. But his heart didn't match up with his actions. That means it would be possible for me to do the right things but not have a heart that is one with God. Is that having works without faith?
2 Chronicles 29:34.
I thought the above text was really interesting as well. Position is also no guarantee of a perfect heart. The priests had a constant reminder of God's love and commands. And yet here was an example of everyday people being more upright in heart than the leaders. This would also prove to be the case in Christ's day.
I'm not a priest, nor a king, but I hope that God can give me a perfect heart like His. I want to love like God does, not love like a selfish human being loves.
