Getting To The Heart Of The Problem

Today Pastor Young helped us to understand that sometimes the heart of our problems is that our heart is a master of disguise! Wow, that one is tight, but it's right! (see reference scripture below).

"Sometimes the heart of the problem is that your heart is a master of disguise" can be related to the message conveyed in Matthew 15:1-20. In this passage, Jesus teaches that the condition of a person's heart matters most to God and that our words and actions reveal what is truly in our hearts.

According to Jesus, the Pharisees and teachers of the law were more concerned about outward actions and adherence to tradition than the true spiritual purity of their hearts. They were, in essence, allowing their hearts to disguise their true nature.

Similarly, in our lives, we often face situations where the heart of the problem lies in the fact that our hearts are masters of disguise. We may try to present ourselves in a certain way or hide our true feelings, but eventually, our true nature will be revealed through our words and actions.

Therefore, it is important to focus on the condition of our hearts and strive for true spiritual purity, rather than allowing our hearts to disguise our true nature. It's only then can we live a truly righteous and fulfilling life, both in the eyes of God and in our interactions with others.

📖Here are 3 things to help put this message into action:

  1. Practice self-awareness: To avoid allowing your heart to be a master of disguise, you need to be aware of your thoughts and emotions. Pay attention to your inner voice, and take the time to reflect on your true feelings about a situation or a person. This can help you avoid presenting a false front and lead to more authentic interactions.

  2. Cultivate a pure heart: Jesus taught that true spiritual purity comes from within and that what is in your heart will eventually reveal itself in your words and actions. To cultivate a pure heart, focus on developing positive character traits like kindness, honesty, and integrity. Regularly engage in activities like prayer, meditation, or journaling to help keep your heart pure.

  3. Don't place too much emphasis on outward appearances: In Matthew 15:1-20, Jesus rebuked the Pharisees and teachers of the law for placing too much emphasis on outward actions and adherence to tradition. Instead, focus on developing a genuine and sincere heart that is in line with God's teachings. Don't worry too much about how others perceive you or about superficial appearances, as true spiritual purity comes from within.
