Your soul is a tenant in your body. Are you a good steward and property management or are you a slum lord? Is your soul housed in impurity and pollutants or righteousness and healthiness?
Your heart is within your body. How are you treating it? What is in your heart expresses what is important to you? Paul Pears says our heart is a think tank. and it reveals a lot about who you are.
Illustration: There was a conference of medical doctors who were discussing the heart as a think tank in link with the brain. There was a debate among the doctors. One doctor came up to the podium and told this story: She had a patient who was 6 years old who had a heart transplant from a ten year old girl who was murdered. The killer was never found. The 6 year old girl started having vivid nightmares and during the day describe a man who murdered her. The parents took her to her doctor and the local police. The little girl was able to describe the 10 year old's neighbor's height, conversations before the murder, the place and weapon and other details. The neighbor was confronted by police and he confessed to the murder of the 10 year old girl.
What would your heart say about you?
Hebrews 3:12-15 speaks about not having a hard heart. Our hearts are always speaking to us to do the right thing. We can prevent spiritual atherosclerosis. Don't stuff your feeling. Pull it up from the root, the same way you do weeds or it will grow back. The speaker, Candice says she has "self induced labor pains" where she looks at a sappy movie or listens to sappy music to "shed tears" and "get it all out".
Many people will say, "I got distracted by wealth and power", "I had hatred because of this person", "It's this person's fault why I am this way and did what I did", "I lived in the here and the now of earthly reasoning and knowledge"......and "somewhere along the way, I lost it and I was not able to get it back." Let's do well to take care of our Mind/Body/and Spirit!
