If someone asked you “How’s your heart?” you would likely think they were referring to your physical heart. But this question can also be asked to inquire about our spiritual condition. In the Parable of the Soils in Luke 8, Jesus teaches that a person’s response to the Word of God is dependent upon the condition of his or her heart. Some people who believe themselves to be open-minded might actually have hearts that are closed to receiving what the Lord is showing them. Repeatedly we are warned by God not to “harden” our hearts. Our children’s program today will explain why. Afterwards, you should ask yourself, “How’s my heart towards the word of God?”

For His glory,
