Mark 2:23-3:19

“He looked around at them angrily and was deeply saddened by their hard hearts. Then he said to the man, ‘Hold out your hand.’ So the man held out his hand, and it was restored!” Mark 3:5 (NLT)

Have you ever been disappointed by someones actions or reaction?  Jesus is looking at the religious leaders of the day in disappointment that they would be more concerned with it being the Sabbath then helping someone who had a need.  Jesus was saddened by their hard hearts.

A hard heart comes when we ignore the things God wants us to be sensitive to.  It can come from avoiding sin that God is convicting us of, not serving in an area God wants us to serve in, and by having an unforgiving heart toward others.  When it comes to your hearts condition, to you have a soft sensitive heart, open to God and what he wants to do?  Or, do you have a hard heart, closed to God and what He wants to do?

Today, God would you break our hearts for the things that break yours.  Help us to be people that a sensitive to you and the things you are trying to accomplish.  Not for our glory, but for the Glory of your name sake.  May we make you famous!
