Honest to the Core

What is God looking for? He is looking for men and women whose hearts are completely His—completely . . . .

God is not looking for magnificent specimens of humanity. He's looking for deeply spiritual, genuinely humble, honest-to-the-core servants who have integrity . . . .

Today, we live in a world that says, in many ways, "If you just make a good impression, that's all that matters."

But you will never be a man or woman of God if that's your philosophy. Never.

You cannot fake it with the Almighty. He is not impressed with externals. He always focuses on the inward qualities . . . those things that take time and discipline to cultivate.

God focuses on our inward qualities that take time and discipline to cultivate.
