Think Through the Gospel of Matthew Day 18 - Heart Trouble!
Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.
“A man had a clock hanging on the wall of his office. The hands on this clock could never seem to keep the right time. Something was always off with the hands. He put a little sign under it that said, “When you look at this clock, please don’t blame the hands. The problem is on the inside.”
A lot of our hands are off track, and a lot of our actions are off track, but the problem lies with a bad heart. This means that if you change the external without fixing the heart you haven’t fixed the root of the problem; you’ve only addressed the fruit of the problem. If you address the fruit and miss the root, you will only have a temporary fix.”
Is there something "off" with your hands (your actions)?
What root in your heart do you have to address?
