“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
~Luke 6:45 (NIV)
Well, how was your weekend? Did the first weekend of the New Year prove to be a good one? Did you have fun, or did you just exist? Did you make it fruitful, or did it just come and go?
As I read this text, I thought a lot about our weekends. How we can sometimes allow the weekends to be a time of fun but end up messing up our hearts? The fun we see with our eyes or say with our mouths seems to work its way down into our hearts.
Now, if we are making the best of our weekends. Spending time with family, catching up on things around the house, maybe giving some of our time to serve others in Christ’s name, and gathering in worship can lead to good things being stored in our heart. Good things in a heart lead to a good man/woman.
But… If our weekend is full of trash, filth, laziness, selfishness, or many other things that are not good then our heart begins to be filled with wicked things. All of a sudden, we start to have wicked thoughts then begin to do wicked things.
As you start this new week off, begin to think about what you will you fill your heart with this? Guard your heart, fill it with good things, and begin to speak and act as a good man should.
Happy Monday everyone,
