I am reading an advance copy of Paul Tripp’s forthcoming book, Sex and Money: Pleasures That Leave You Empty and Grace That Satisfies. I would strongly encourage you to pre-order this book. It will encourage your heart to be more Christ-centered and to find joy in glorifying Him.
Saying that Tripp’s book will encourage your heart to be more Christ-centered raises the question of what is meant by “heart.” Tripp offers the following:
Scripture presents the heart as the seat of our emotion, motivation, will, thought, and desire. What this means is that when you encounter the word ‘heart’ in your Bible, you should have the following definition in your brain. The heart is the causal center of your personhood.
This definition of “heart” in mind, perhaps meditate on and study Proverbs 4:23 and the surrounding context.
