Heart Check (Part 2)

Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Is it possible to guide and guard our thoughts? Can we decide on what goes in and stays in our heart? Absolutely yes! We can decide or determine what enters and stays in our hearts. Our passage today Proverbs 4:23 says 'Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life'. 'Keep your heart with all diligence' denotes responsibility. Which means we have a responsibility to keep our hearts. We have a say on what goes in and stays, so to say. The passage goes on to tell us the reason why we should keep our hearts with all diligence and utmost care. Because out of the heart comes issues of

Heart Check (Part 1)

Matthew 15:18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. How often have we said something to someone and then turn to say 'oh I didn't mean that?' How often have you said something hurting to your spouse and say 'oh sorry I didn't mean to say that?' We often apologise for words spoken which we feel we didn't mean to say. Occasionally, some effects of these words we have altered are redeemable but other times they are not. In Matthew 15:18, Jesus says 'those things' which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart. But what are those things, someone may ask? They are words! The Master is simply saying that our words come from our hear

The Lords testimony

Psalms 119:99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. How often have we heard people discredit the events of the bible? Often we see people make jest of miracles of the past. Even as believers we often doubt whether these things are true. Hence, we are failing to pass it down the generations with utmost conviction. Notice what the psalmist has to say in Psalms 119:99 'I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation'. In other words meditating on the God's testimonies gives and brings great understanding. Spending time to think and talk about the things that God has done in the past can be a great tool of enc

The Word Of God Is My Delight

Psalms 119:162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil. Have you ever found a great spoil in the real sense of it? Have you been opportune to encounter a fortune? How did you feel when suddenly you find yourself in great wealth? Or could you imagine what it feels like to find a great spoil or even finding a great idea? What a joy there is. Great spoil might sound or appear relative to some. However, a great spoil is great in the true sense of it. Great spoils can bring great joy and pleasure to whoever finds it. From our passage today Psalms 119:162, the psalmist simply describes the way he feels about the word of God. 'I rejoice at thy word'. And he, the psalmist goes on to m

Happy Days (Pt 5)

Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it'. Good morning! Have you ever stopped to think why you say 'good morning' when you meet people in the morning? Have you ever wondered why this simple act of courtesy has been handed over from generations to generations? Why do we make every effort to ensure that little children learn it? Well, I haven't really considered it myself until recently. Last week I met one of my clients at my workplace waiting at the reception to be attended to. I greeted him while I walked pass saying 'Good morning, this is a good morning' and I waved to the outside which was dull and cloudy. To my surprise, he replied with a
