Protect you heart
Man`s evil comes from inside his heart.

Mark 7.1 tells us that Jesus used to do the work and the disciples followed Him. The Pharisees didn`t observe the miracles, neither the healings, nor who received the salvation. They just observed that the disciples used to eat without washing their hands. Jesus made it crystal clear that the customs are not important, but men conquer God`s Kingdom.
Jesus said that, very carefully, the Pharisees got to violate God`s law while they were concerned about social traditions. Jesus mentioned to honor father and mother because who spoke ill of them was punished severely with death sentence. How many of them are with their feet in hell so far because they didn`t care for and used to attack their parents? Jesus used this example because people were breaking God`s law and disrespected Him. They have had a curse life because they don`t honor their parents.
The law said that people couldn`t speak ill of their parents, but if they gave an offer, they would be delivered from having to honor them. Until today it`s like that. We pay for the right to make a mistake. We still have corruptive people and payments to solve situations. Don`t cheat yourself. There is no bargain with God. Jesus was very clear regarding the biggest concern, which it is not what comes to people`s lives, but what comes from them. What make a person be defeated is his production, his speech, and his feats. The nourishment and customs don`t contaminate men but wrong words and feats. Jesus regarded all of food as pure. What contaminate a person are the evil that comes inside out, and the wish that leads to sin. That`s what should be our biggest concern. Don`t simply clean the outside and portalt to clean inside. In other words, never keep the evil feeling in your heart. Abandon wickedness. That`s what destroy moral and families. They also destroy men. What shapes your life, success and failure is what comes from your heart. That`s why the Bible teaches us to keep our heart clean because it originates life and evil. What we should worry about is what comes out of our heart and from our thoughts. Be careful at what you have been thinking about. When you have bad thoughts, rebuke them immediately. They are like weed; they fall into your heart and fulfill it completely. You have to keep your heart as pure as possible, fulfilled with good things. The world tries to contaminate our heart, they want your thoughts to be dirty likewise the world. If you think bad things, you will be about to do bad things too. The wickedness is like a tumor. It keeps you away from living well. It destroys you from inside out. Your inner evil reflects outside. A person, who has a sick heart, has harmful thoughts. Jesus said that evil comes inside out and do harm man. Ask God to purify you inside out, for the Holy Spirit wash and purify your heart and your thoughts.
