There is no heart so hard but what God's hammer can dash it in pieces.

Thus saith the Lord,"Make these people stubborn! Make them stop up their ears, cover their eyes, and fail to understand, don't let them turn to me and be healed".

Hardness of heart will drive God away. For unbelievers, This is the reason why some will not be saved. Hardness of heart toward God. [The unforgivable sin].

I believe it is because there is a lack of forgiveness. For non-Christian families you can almost understand how they wouldn't know how to forgive, but it goes on in Christian families as well and we know better! We have to forgive those who hurt us. Being bitter only causes us harm, not the other person.

Very sad! It is the "I, Me, Mine, syndrome" No one wants to admit they are wrong. and selfishly are concerned only about their own "rights"
How much they miss out on. They don't seek the truth cause it would require a personal change.
Hardness of heart happens when one knows the truth but refuses to obey it.

There are some horrible tragedies that have been done to people. Sometimes forgiveness takes time esspecially if it was done out of vindictiveness or revenge of grudges. You should not hold onto bitterness unless of course you bite from the bitterplant and then you can't help it

Because Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy. And people like this are letting him. If they don't make things right with God and with their neighbor or family, they will be judged by God for holding a grudge against someone. They don't seek the truth because they have blinders on, and maybe at this point there are so many lies, they don't know what to believe.

Darlene1>>>Yes, I liked what you wrote. It does not seem to be over religious. I like that. Also, especially sinse I have yet to figure out what in the world God sees in any of us. And that is the truth. Have a good day. And I mean it.

Often what appears to be hardness of heart is really self preservation. People put up with bad behavior,especially in families, for years until they come to the point the only thing they can do for their own good/peace of mind is to withdraw from the abusing person. They may forgive the person and have over and over for many offenses, but wisdom dictates they shouldn't have anything to do with them. Thats not hardness of heart but self protection from more evil behavior directed at them by that person.

The bible tells us the reason in 2nd Corinthians
2Co 4:3-4 read these two verses and the apply Luke 10:19 to the people that need the glorios light that only Christ can give.

I ran into a stranger as he passed by
Oh, excuse me please, was my reply
He said, Please excuse me too;
I wasn't watching for you.
We were very polite, this stranger and I.
We went on our way and we said goodbye.

But at home a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.
Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
Move out of the way, I said with a frown.

He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn't realize how harshly I had spoken.
While I lay awake in bed,
God's still small voice came to me and said,
While dealing with a stranger,
common courtesy you use,
The family you love, you seem to abuse.

Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.
Those are the flowers he brought for you,
He picked them himself, pink, yellow, blue.

He stood very quietly not to spoil the
surprise,
You never saw the tears that filled his eyes.
By this time, I felt very small
And now my tears begin to fall.

I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
Wake up, little one, wake up, I said.
Are these the flowers you picked for me?
He smiled, I found' em, out by the tree.
I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue.

I said, Son, I'm sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way.
He said, Oh, Mom, that's okay.
I love you, anyway.
I said, Son, I love you, too,
I really like the flowers, especially the blue.
