The Hidden Core


As the core of the apple is seldom admired,
But guards the seed that may grow
And produce apples in abundance,
So the heart of the faithful may be overlooked,
Though it bears precious seed that may grow
And produce abundantly fruit for the Kingdom.

Lord, guard our hearts.
Protect our cores
From the worm of immorality
And the rot of doubt.
Protect our hearts
And grow your fruit
That more may taste
And see that the Lord is good.

Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
--Psalm 34:8
