Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts. 1 John 5:21 (NLT)
A throne seats one. Study virtually any monoarchy in human history and you’ll find wars have been fought, schemes hatched, deals made, and assassinations carried out to determine who will sit on that throne.
In my heart is a throne.
Who (or what) sits on that throne and rules my life? Who (or what) schemes to occupy it? What do I need to do about it?
