“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” Luke 6:45 KJV
I believe everyone to have “some” evil in their heart. If we didn’t then we would be perfect…and we aren’t. The key word here is ABUNDANCE. If you are alone and you tripped over a rock going in to work this morning and you said a ‘certain’ word to the rock then that doesnt make me, I mean said person, abundantly evil.
However, if we are constantly gossiping, stirring peoples pots, lying, and so on…if it is our lifestyle to use our mouth to tear down, insult, lie, and if we were on television and nobody know a thing we are trying to say because of all the editing bleeps…. then maybe check our heart. If one or more of these is our idea of fun and gives us joy then our hearts may be ABUNDANTLY full of the wrong stuff. It might be time for a heart bath. Maybe, for some of us, a little disinfecting and deodorizing, as well…and that’s ok! If we clean it out and make some room for Jesus, our lives will ABUNDANTLY improve. He guarantees it! ♥
