Thought for Today
The Soul’s Desire
“As the hart panteth after the water brooks,
so panteth my soul after thee, O God.”
The soul is the seat of our affections. What the eyes behold the soul pursues. Those who set their affections upon heavenly things know the longing, seeking and pursuit for God. Those who behold earthly things, lust and desire after the things of the world and the praise of men know nothing of heavenly things. It is not difficult to discern the true longing of any heart for it cannot hide the thing it desires most.
“For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also”
The heart of a life is revealed in the thing it covets.
“Set your affection on things above,
not on things on the earth”
