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 speaketh. – Luke 6:45 (KJV)
Being a christian means being in the world but not of the world. I’ve said this before and I’d say it again for every time I have to, in order to remind you.
The deal is everything going on “out” in the world is the effect of what is going on “in” you. The state of our world influences the state of your mind and your heart. But it’s up to you to let it take over or you take over.
The best way to live life is to change your negative thoughts about someone or something. This goes for your relationships, your jobs, your expressions, your feelings and so on.
You must bring out from within what positive you feel feel to overpower the negative but this requires discipline.
Like food, what you feed yourself with will tell on you. You have to build your inside to build your outside. Focus on the “internal” things that give your life meaning; Jesus, the bible, faith, family and friends. Take time to learn and grow.
Just like the bible alphabet song by psalty:
Hide God’s Word in your heart it’s a lamp unto your feet. Read God’s Word. Every day it’s your food, your bread and meat. Stand on the truth of the Bible. Open your eyes and memorize.
Fill your heart with the things of the bible and your life will reflect it. You won’t even know when or how.
Have a blessed weeeeeeeek!!
