God Wants Our Whole Heart

“God demands your heart of you; He wants it absolutely. If you refuse it, you refuse everything: there can no longer be any real union between you and God. The heart is all of ourselves; it stands for our joys, our pains, our affections. God wants all or nothing. When it is a question of supreme love, we cannot share it with our neighbor: God wants our whole heart and will consent to divide it with no one. Certainly your heart is not so very large; give it entirely! If you divide it into parts, you will find that creatures will always have more than the Creator.”
