Luke 6:43-45 (NKJV)
For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
I have heard my pastor say that if you want to find out what a person is made of, just jostle them up and see what spills out.
So true that is. The bible also says that there is no one good but God. So if I am to be good where will the good come from? Well it must come from God. He does that by coming to live in my heart. I pray now that when I am jostled, that Jesus will spill out.
Jeremiah 17:9 (NKJV)
"The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
Psalm 51:10a (NKJV)
Create in me a clean heart, O God
