TAKING A MOMENT

JULY 8, 2013 – NO CALLOUS – Do you have a callous? If you do, you can actually see how your skin has hardened. I have been a janitor at Harper I.S.D. for almost two years now. Within my first two weeks of work I could see six calluses beginning to form on my hands. I told my co-workers that there was no way that my hands were going to get that way. They just laughed at me and told me that there was no way that I could be a janitor and not get calluses. I came to work the next day wearing work-out gloves; wear them everyday! Two years later, I still have soft hands! Do you realize that the Word of God will actually keep our hearts soft? The Word of God covers our hearts. When our hearts become hard and calloused, sin does not affect us that much, but when our hearts are soft and sensitive, sin hurts us. When you sin does your heart hurt? When you see sin in the world, does it break your heart? Refuse to be calloused – put on the Word of God everyday! Psalms 73:7 From their callous hearts comes iniquity; the evil conceits of their minds know no limits. (NIV) Psalms 119:11   Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You! (NKJ)
