Illustration: Heart Buried in Africa
There is a story of the great missionary David Livingstone. The body of David Livingstone was buried in England where he was born, but his heart was buried in the Africa he loved. At the foot of a tall tree in a small African village the natives dug a hole and placed in it the heart of this man who they loved and respected.
If your heart were to be buried in the place you loved most during life, where would it be? In your pocketbook? In an appropriate space down at the office? Where is your heart? (Galaxie Software. (2002; 2002). 10,000 Sermon Illustrations. Biblical Studies Press.)
