"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." Luke 6:45
We spend our entire lives without personally seeing inside our own physical heart. We know our heart is there and it is critical to our survival but we have a hard time knowing how our physical heart really is doing. Our heart, however, has a way of letting us know when it is really sick. Usually the message the sick heart sends stops our world and makes us pay attention to our heart.
Most people also know they have a spiritual heart, but they do not know how it tells them when it is sick. They do not know the spiritual heart speaks.
To know the condition of our spiritual heart, we simply have to listen to what comes out of our mouth. If evil comes out of our mouth we know our inner, hidden spiritual heart is very sick. If good comes out of our mouth we know our spiritual heart is filled with God’s love.
Evil is anything that I think, feel or do that gives me permission to stop loving others. When I hear words coming from my mouth that give me permission to hate, ignore, condemn or criticize others, I can know my spiritual heart is having a heart attack.
When our physical heart speaks through weakness, pain or a heart attack, we must stop and pay complete attention because our life is at stake. When something evil comes out of our mouths we must stop and pay complete attention because love is at stake.
