"You have freedom only to give your heart away."

My son, give me your heart...  ~Proverbs 23:26

"God will love you, of course, even though you do not love him, but remember if you give him only half your heart, he can make you only fifty percent happy.  You have freedom only to give your heart away.  To whom do you give yours?  You give it either to the moods of the hour, to your egotism, to creatures, or to God." 
 ~Ven. Fulton J. Sheen

Oh dear Lord, deliver me from half-heartedness!  You who have given me Your entire being down to the last drop of Your Precious Blood, let me at least try to give You my whole heart -- not only for the sake of my happiness but most importantly for the praise of Your glory.  Amen!
