Summary of the message


Main Verse:- Luke 6:45
A good person produces good out of the good stored up in his heart. An evil person produces evil out of the evil stored up in his heart, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart. (CSB)

Introduction
• Keeping our hearts in check is very important.
• How far we go in conversations, and talk determines our standard. 

Purity and simplicity are the two wings with which man soars above the earth and all temporary nature. Simplicity is in the intention, purity in the affection; simplicity turns to God; purity unites with and enjoys him. - Thomas A Kempis

1. Do not judge others (Lk. 6:37)
2. Forgive others to be forgiven
3. Trying to correct others while ignoring our own needs (Lk. 6:41-42)
4. Tree and Fruits (Lk 6:43-44)
5. Overflow of Heart (Lk 6:45)
    • Desires of our heart placement- Mathew 6:21 -  Wherever your treasure is, the desires of your heart will also be.
    • Heart determines what we speak - Math. 12:33 “A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad. 34 You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. 35 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. 36 And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle word you speak. 37 The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.”
    • Heart can become hardened (Math. 13:15)
    • Heart can be far away. (Math. 15:8)
    • Heart can produce bad things (Mathew 15:19)
    • God knows our hearts. (Luke 16:15)
    • Heart can get dulled - “Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by the worries of this life. Don’t let that day catch you unaware, (Luke 21:34)
Conclusion
Don't worry about having the right words; worry more about having the right heart. It's not eloquence he seeks, just honesty. - Max Lucado
