day 8: heart and soul

Last week I did a concordance search on the word, "heart." It surprised me to see the number of Scriptures which tied the heart and soul together. In the New King James Version, this happens 36 times.  

A nice segue into the focus for this week: loving God with all my soul. But what does this mean?

For that I turned to In Hebrew, the word for soul is "nephesh." Its definitions include soul, self, life, creature, person, appetite, mind, living being, desire, emotion, passion. And, "that which breathes, the breathing substance or being, soul, the inner being of man."

We are to love God with our very breath. Inhaling love. Exhaling love. For the very one who breathed life into dust.
