What Kind of Treasure Is Inside of You?
“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.”
Whatever a person gives their thought life and words to is what becomes their inward treasure. Our hearts are, in a sense, incubators. Thoughts that are continually meditated on and rolled around in the heart eventually find conception: they become our “treasure.” Then we will begin to look for ways to bring out into the open what we have given value to on the inside and we do that by our words and our actions. If we treasure good things inside, then good things will come out of us. If we treasure evil things inside, then that is what will come out of us. These things do not come about by accident; they come about because of what we choose to continually think about. If you desire good things to come out of you, then give your thoughts to the Word of God and good things. If evil things seem to be “rooted” inside of you, repent, change the things that you have been thinking on. Think on the good. You will uproot the evil, cast it out and have a treasure of good things inside of yourself. Good things will come out!
