‘Heart of Man’ as per The Bible
The heart within the chest just pumps the blood,
But ‘heart’ stands for mind’s functions entire,
Especially those deep and moral ones!
‘Heart’ stands for mental actions and feelings;
‘Heart’ represents the inner, real man –
His character influenced by divine.
Heart refers to all emotions and will;
And ‘conscience’ telling what is right from wrong;
Man’s duty prime is keep always heart pure.
Both good and bad arise from heart of man;
God sees man’s heart and knows its secrets all;
The heart can err unless properly trained!
The laws of God afill the righteous heart,
that stays afree of every sin and vice;
A foul, a mouth reflects corrupt, a heart!
Love God by heart, forgiving brother’s faults;
God judges man by seeing state of heart;
‘The pure of heart are blessed and shall see God! ’
