New Focus: Fixed Heart (#887)
We’ll continue our series on having a new a new focus, especially now that we are in a new year. Today we’ll take a look at the Fixed Heart. This is a topic we’ve covered from time to time, but haven’t covered in a year or two. So it will be good to go back and see how these verses apply today. And it is funny how you can read a verse and have one understanding and then sometime later read it again when you’re going through something different and see even how much more it applies. Let’s start in Deuteronomy 11.
