034 – Understand the Problem

Use those ears. Go to work on thoroughly understanding this: It’s not what goes into your mouth, but what comes out of it, that ruins you. What happens with food is obvious – you chew it, digest it, poo it and flush it, there’s no problem with this! It’s what’s happening in your heart that’s the real issue. The stuff that bubbles up from the soul – bitterness and brutality, schemes and swindling, lust and lewdness, that’s what really corrodes and corrupts. It leaves you facing away from God, lacking love for others, talking rubbish. Dodgy desires, not diets, are the root.
