The Blessings of the Wasteland
Hunger of the heart has many symptoms similar to hunger of the stomach. When speaking of the heart, I am of course using it in a figurative sense as it is used in the Bible and as I did in part one of this series. The word is used to speak of our spiritual lives.
Jesus speaks of the heart as being an indicator of the spiritual condition of a man:
The good man brings good things out of the good treasure of his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil treasure of his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks. (Luke 6:45 BSB)
And, as the proverb puts it: “As water reflects the face, so the heart reflects the true man” (Proverbs 27:19 BSB).
What is it that your heart is reflecting for all to see?
