Mound Visits, 8/14/17
Jesus grew up in Joseph and Mary’s house learning how to be a carpenter. He was a carpenter’s son. He is also an architect who has redesigned millions upon millions of hearts, including mine. Jesus is trying to clean out the selfishness, jealousy, envy, pride and fear and replace them with love, forgiveness, generosity, peace and joy. I am a work in progress. I’m not there yet, but I’m further along than I used to be. We can’t rid ourselves of the junk in our hearts unless we open our hearts to Jesus.
He said this in Luke 6:45:
“The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of the heart his mouth speaks.”
