“What really matters is what’s in your heart.” ?

This phrase concerns me—not because it is wholly false. People who say it usually mean that God prizes deeply rooted conviction and affection within the person. And clearly this is a key biblical truth (1 Sam. 16:7; Luke 12:34; Rom. 2:29).

Yet Jesus tells us to love God with heart and mind (Matt. 22:37). We can’t love anyone we don’t know—even our great God. Burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads.

We can have heads full of knowledge that never penetrates our hearts, but our hearts can’t fully adore the Lord unless we love Him with our minds. If we don’t train our minds on His revelation, plumbing its depths to see how it fits together and informs all of life, our Christian growth will be stunted and sacrificial discipleship will be impossible.
