The heart is the key to abundant life

The heart of the wise teacheth his mouth, and addeth learning to his lips.” (Proverbs 16:23).

The heart of man can be viewed as the factory where characters and conducts are produced. It is the faculty of thinking, the seat of emotions and the core center of spiritual activities. The process of habit formation has its root in the heart. Human behaviors are good indicators of the state of the heart. Jesus says that “Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.…for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Matthew 12:33,34).

Your character and conduct in your daily interactions within the society hence continue to reveal much about your heart condition. Believers are scripturally taught to keep their heart pure. Clean heart will produce clean character and also keep the body healthy. The heart that is allowed to breed evils will lead man to bad behaviors. Do not allow impurity, filthiness and evil thinking in your heart.

The book of proverbs says that you should “keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23). If you will surrender your heart for purging and purification by the power of God, your life will become a model for other Christians.

Challenge: Your heart is the faculty of thinking
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to keep my heart pure.
