Wisdom For Each Day – October 21, 2014

Our hearts are sinful.  All the things happening in the world that discourage us and cause despair come from the human heart.  Our hearts, Jesus said, are a storehouse of evil (Mark 7:21).

Our hearts are far from God (Matthew 15:8).  Many of us go to church and outwardly live a good life, but…we are living for ourselves instead of Christ.

Jesus died on the cross to show us the seriousness of our heart condition.  He came to cleanse our hearts, to give us a heart-softening picture of God’s divine and infinite love, and to woo us to Himself when the world tempts us to stray.

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure.  Who can understand it?

Jeremiah 17:9
