Discussions of the Heart

Research Natural Science

“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10 NIV).

When reviewing and discussing the heart.  The students each presented questions based on their terms from the heart. One student posed the question:

“What attribute of God does the right/left pulmonary vein illustrate?”

Another Student answered:

“Blood always flows in one direction; Jesus flows in one direction. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8).

Another student asked, “How does this research topic [the heart] affect the things around it?”  And, she profoundly answered her own question, “When the heart is working as it should you can be a benefit.” She then referenced a book we are reading called The Door in the Wall by Marguerite de Angeli.  She noted Robin, one of the main characters in the book, a child, who “had become ill and unable to move his legs” chose not to be a benefit because of his infirmity.  In fact, because of the anger in his heart, he had become quite the contrary.  When Dame Ellen came to serve him he “would neither turn nor answer” her and even flung the bowl of porridge she had brought him all over her in a fit.  However, once his heart was working as it should through the love, mercy, and grace of God, he became a benefit by using his hands, contrary to flinging porridge, to do good works.
