(John MacDuff, “Ripples in the Twilight” 1885)
“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life!” Proverbs 4:23
Leave the heart to itself — untrained, unlopped, unpruned, uncultured — and you will soon have a wild wilderness — an aggregate of distorted ugliness — the home and haunt of all venomous things! We must lay the axe to the root of every evil habit and debasing passion!
“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry!” Colossians 3:5
