a: Human heart ~
What: "Every human heart is like a temple, a place set apart where God can come to dwell, in order to be close to humankind. Even though our hearts belong to God by right, for God designed and built them, God entrusts them to us, to manage, to determine what will be allowed in and what will be kept out. Just like the wicked king Ahaz, and the priests who carried out his orders, we are capable of erecting false altars in the temples of our hearts, we can let them be the sites of unholy sacrifices to money, power, and all manner of indulgence. So examine your hearts closely and if you find an altar there that does not belong, tear it down, just like Hezekiah did when he came to power on the throne of Judah."
