What Will the Lord Find?


"the Lord, search the minds and tests the hearts of people, treating each in accordance to the way they live and what they do."     -Jeremiah 17.10

When the Lord search your mind and test your heart, what will be found?  

In these trouble times, our hearts are constantly tested.  

Will it remain true to the Lord? 

Will it be true to love, true to peace (the Prince of Peace)?  

The Lord has the highest moral and ethical standards; where fairness and justice are the norm.  

It is only fitting to have moral outrage when these standards are compromised or violated.  

It is right to fighting for fair and just treatment of people, especially the right to live without fear of abuse or murder.  

When the Lord search you for the way you are, is the search on the outside?  

Is it ever about outward appearance? 

What matters is who you are on the inside; the way you live your life and what you do with it. 

What will the Lord find?

Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
