Wholeheartedly

“By the time they’re five or so, most kids understand the social rule that if you hurt someone, you need to say you’re sorry. In fact, some have learned it so well that they try to use it as a free pass (the snooty ‘sorrryyy!”).”

“It’s Hard for Me to Say, ‘I’m Sorry'” by Jennifer King Lindley, Real Simple Magazine, May 2016

Obviously, that was not a sincere apology! It was not a wholehearted expression of regret and they really didn’t mean it.

Imagine how God feels when we do the right thing half-halfheartedly.

2 Chronicles 25:2, “Amaziah did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight, but not wholeheartedly.” New Living Translation

Talk about an attitude check!

Dear Father God,

Forgive me for every time I did something for You halfheartedly. Thank You for the reminder that I need to do my best on everything for Your glory.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
