The Dodgy Car

If your heart is right with God, the rest will follow.
There’s nothing more annoying than a car that won’t start. It happened to me recently with a car I bought that seemed a real bargain. It’s easy to paint a dodgy car up and make it look good, while not bothering to fix what matters most.
The reality is that our lives don’t always go the way we plan. Often we aren’t the people we want to be. We try and try, but we’re not the husbands, the wives, the sons, the daughters, the friends that we should be, and we wonder why.
Perhaps its because we focus on the externals rather than on what matters most. Jesus taught that it’s our hearts that cause our problems (Matt. 15:1–20), and that if our hearts are right, then our behaviours will be right. That’s why the teachings of Jesus overwhelmingly focus on the heart.
Remember, if your heart is right with God, the rest will follow.
