Flexible heart shapes

If you had any idea what this scripture meant, ‘I prefer a flexible heart to an inflexible ritual’—you wouldn’t be nitpicking like this.  Matt. 12:6b-7 Message

No human heart is perfectly shaped to hold the grace and wisdom of Christ. A flexible heart abandons the expectation of holding a neat, symmetrical shape. Sometimes I resist when He stretches me because caring like Christ disorders my world and sets me up for pain. A flexible heart is ready to accept what Christ wants to put into it.

Lord, stretch my heart into the shape of Your concern.
