“The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart” (Luke 6:45).
From a parable dealing with the human tendency to criticize and judge, Jesus teaches that our words have the ability to speak life or death, victory or defeat, fact or fiction, edification or destruction. If the gospel is truly accomplishing its work in our lives then it changes the ground rules by which we deal with others. What the gospel seeks to achieve within us is what we imagine ourselves being. Let us be as great in our actions as we are in our imagination.
