Hand painted heart of many colors.

Messy Heart & Love

God loves us with perfect love.  His love never changes or fades.  We love God and others with imperfect love.  This messy but beautiful heart reminds me of our love for God and for others – it contains a variety of colors with patches of darkness alongside bright and light sections.  The beauty of being a believer in Jesus Christ, is that if we ask Him to love others through us, He will.  He will take our messy-hearted love and use it to shine His light in a dark world.

In Mark 12:28-30 we see what the most important commandment is according to Jesus. "One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, “What commandment is the foremost of all?” Jesus answered, “The foremost is, ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’"
