Many passages point us to the importance of the heart. Solomon does the same in this passage. The heart is a major battlefield in salvation and Christian living. Certainly, the first truth the Christian needs to understand is their need for the Gospel. But after the Gospel, this passage becomes another major truth we need to live for Christ. May we in the New Year consider and guard our hearts.

Affliction often leaves us feeling like we are alone and hopeless in our trial. We can feel like no one see’s, hears, or knows our struggle. Yet the sight, hearing, and all-knowing of God is a powerful truth that we are never alone. Israel likely felt hopelessly alone in their oppression. Yet their suffering and cries for help were observed, heard, and known by God. And his character of mercy, love, and justice demands that God will deliver us from our trials.

Topical: Palm Sunday

In this way, the Scriptures keep before us what is most important. Easter is not a new beginning, but another confirmation that Jesus is who He says He is, doing what He said He would do!
For the LORD sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the LORD looks on the heart ( ). These words from 1 Samuel apply perfectly to our Gospel lesson which is all about seeing.
