I chose Joel 2:12-13 for today’s thoughts

“Yet, even now, says the Lord, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning; Rend your heart not your garments, and return to the Lord, your God.

In many eastern cultures people feeling anguish over an event, personal or national are known to shred their outer garments as an expression of their deep feelings.

The writer of Joel says its our hearts that need a change which suggests to me that the rending of our hearts should result in changed attitudes and actions.

Do you need a spiritual heart transplant?  I know I do!
