The heart produces something very strong: emotions. The heart is very dangerous, and just one mistake with it can cost you a lifetime. Mark 7:20-23 reads: "20-The things that come from a man are the things that make him wrong. 21-All these bad things begin inside a person, in his mind: bad thoughts, sexual sins, stealing, murder, adultery, selfishness, doing bad things to people, lying, doing sinful things, jealousy, saying bad things about people, proud boasting, and foolish living. 23-All these evil things come from inside a person. These things make a person wrong."

If we could start meditating on the Word of God and follow it, our hearts would be much closer to God, away from all the evil thoughts.

If you (as an individual) could allow God to come into your life and take control of everything (soul, mind, and heart), your life would never be the same again. Let go of the things of this world because one thing I know: You can gain the whole world, and lose your soul.
