Weekly Reflection

With All Your Heart

07-14-2019We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 44, No. 2

I know it by heart!, the child shouts in excitement. She could be talking about her times tables, or maybe a nursery rhyme, or perhaps the “Our Father”. But whatever the object of her memorization, she knows it as well as it can possibly be known. Moses realized this when he spoke to the people about God’s commandments: “It is something very near to you...in your hearts” (Deuteronomy 30:14). But what better way to remember something, to know it by heart, than to illustrate it with a story? The story of the Samaritan caring for the robbery victim is so well-known that it has become part of our vernacular. We invariably hear “a good Samaritan” anytime someone goes out of their way to help someone they don’t know. So it is easy to know by heart who your neighbor truly is. But to have it in your heart is more than just knowing it perfectly. It also means that it moves you. Moses also spoke about returning to God “with all your heart” (Deuteronomy 30:10). If God’s will is in your heart, not only do you know what do, you can’t help but do it. “Go and do likewise,” Jesus says (Luke 10:37). Go and do with all your heart.

What do you feel motivated to do with all your heart?

Con Todo Tu Corazón

Lo sé de memoria!, Grita la niña con entusiasmo. Podría estar hablando de sus tablas de multiplicación, o tal vez de una canción de cuna, o tal vez del :Padre Nuestro”. Pero sea cual sea el objeto de su memorización, ella lo sabe tan bien como es posible que se sepa. Moisés se dio cuenta de esto cuando le habló a la gente acerca de los mandamientos de Dios: “Están muy a tu alcance...en tu corazón” (Deuteronomio 30:14). Pero, ¿qué mejor manera de recordar algo, saberlo de memoria, que ilustrarlo con una historia? La historia del samaritano que cuida a la víctima del robo es tan conocida que se ha convertido en parte de nuestra lengua vernácula. Siempre escuchamos “el buen samaritano” cada vez que alguien hace un esfuerzo para ayudar a alguien que no conoce. Por lo tanto, es fácil saber de memoria quién es realmente tu prójimo. Pero tenerlo en tu corazón es más que simplemente saberlo perfectamente. También significa que te mueve. Moisés también habló acerca de regresar a Dios “con todo tu corazón” (Deuteronomio 30:10). Si la voluntad de Dios está en tu corazón, no solo ya sabes qué hacer, no vas poder evitarlo. “Anda y haz tú lo mismo”, dice Jesús (Lucas 10:37). Ve y haz con todo tu corazón.

¿Cómo puedes trabajar con el Señor por la cosecha?
