DEVO 02.26.24

DEVO. 02.26.24

”It’s not what goes into your body that defiles you; you are defiled by what comes from your heart.” ‭‭(Mark‬ ‭7‬:‭15‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

- What have you put in you?

- I’m not talking about that pizza or that bean burrito that you ate last night.

- I’m talking about the toxic things that you may have put in your heart.

- Things like bitterness, pride, jealousy, anger, resentment, ungratefulness and anything else toxic.

- Jesus says that what you fill your heart with is far more important than what you fill your belly with.

- Proverbs 4:23 says, ”Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.“

- ‭‭”Above all else!” That sounds pretty important.

- Jesus was saying that if you begin to store up spiritually harmful things in your heart, that it will grow and there will be an overflow.

- Mark 7:21 says, ”For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness.“

- ‭‭From within!

- So, today, let’s carefully guard our heart!

- And along with our “defensive efforts” let’s also play offense!

- Fill your heart with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

- Let’s fill our hearts with thankfulness and praise to the Lord!

- Just like negative things can grow, so can the positive!

- Guard your heart but also fill your heart with the goodness of God.

- Have a great Monday!
