A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. Matthew 12:35(NLT)
Everything pertaining to a person’s life and way is found in and comes from the heart. In other words our lives and ways are the exact reflection of the condition of our hearts or inner being.
A good heart is reflected in a person’s good life and good influence over everything around him. Similarly an evil heart is reflected in a person’s evil life and evil influence over everything around him.
All the forces of life and the cosmos spring forth from man’s innermost being.
Love, Peace, joy, faith, hope and kindness are all from the heart. Knowledge, Wisdom, understanding and creativity flow from the heart. A loving person is a product of a heart full of love. A peaceful environment is a product of peaceful people who are products of a peaceful heart.
Similarly selfishness, hatred, envy, confusion, fear, hardness, immorality and shame are from the heart. Therefore the only way to change our lives and world is to change our hearts. This can only be done when we give our hearts to Jesus the heart exchanger. In the place of an evil heart he gives us a good heart.
