Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.(Proverbs 4:23KJV).
The fruit of your heart is a product of the seed you have sown in the soil of your heart. It is either a good or bad seed. Some people are labeled as heartless because of the evil state of their heart while there are people you can look at and say that they have a heart of gold.

What is this heart that we are talking about? The heart we are talking about is not the muscular organ in most animals, which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system .In humans, the heart is located between the lungs, in the middle compartment of the chest.

The heart we refer to here is the center of decision making (the seat of wisdom). It is a place where you manufacture decisions that will  affect your body, soul and spirit.

The heart is where you  reason life issues and coming up with solutions.
You have heard people say I am doing this from my heart. What they mean is that I am doing this based on the decision that I have made, because I know that what I am doing is right for you. Though people can tell you it is from their heart but it is not really from their heart, they have evil intentions.

Where is the heart located?
The heart is sometimes  referred to as the soul. The soul is made up of the mind, will and emotions. The heart we are talking about is not visible in the human body. It is the coordination of the mind, will and emotions which results in decision making. It is the ruling centre of the whole person. It forms the character, attitude and belief system of a person.

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. (Matthew 12:35KJV)
How to have a Kind Heart:
Your heart can  bear good fruits based on the seed that has been sown by you. The  bible says that a man is defiled based on the words that comes out of his mouth  and his words are from the investment he has made in his heart.
This shows that to live a fulfilled life on earth our heart must be right before God and man. Joseph whose brothers sold him to slavery did not even retaliate when he saw his brothers that sold him into slavery in Egypt. He loved them even when their Father died and his brothers where afraid that Joseph might harm them based on what they did to him in the past. He told  them that he was not God that he will take vengeance.
[15]And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him.[16]And they sent a messenger unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,[17]So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.[18]And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we be thy servants.[19]And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?[20]But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.[21]Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.(Genesis 50:15-21KJV).

Did you see the kind heart of Joseph towards his bothers? This is amazing and this how God wants us to live as his children. Your heart can only be kind and full of gold when you feed on the word of God. Sow the seed of God's word in your heart.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.(Psalms 119:11KJV)
Your heart expression in any situation of life is based on the seeds you have sown in your heart. If you have sown the seed of love like Joseph sowed you will certainly love people. If you sow the seed of faith you will walk in faith. If you sow the seed of Joy from the word of God you will walk in Joy...
You sow the seed of God's word by reading, studying and meditating on the word of God. This is how you invest or sow the word of God in your heart. The word of God gives your heart the ability to make the right decisions that will give God glory in every facet of life
[7]Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.[8]Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. (James 4:7-8 KJV).

Your heart can be good and full of gold when you have a relationship of  fellowship with God in prayer. As you fellowship with God you will begin to act and think like Him. You will be passionate for He is passionate about and hate what He hates.

Lastly  your heart can be good and full of gold when you walk in the Spirit. You should allow the Holy Spirit to lead you. He will help you in sowing the word in your heart and in your relationship with God. He will help you to make the right decisions because He will guide you into all truth.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. (Romans 8:14 KJV).
A wicked heart will only lead the person to destruction. I want you to do a quick check up on your heart today.
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders. (Matthew 15:19).
How to do a quick heart check up:
Are your motives and desires in line with the word of God. If it then your heart is right with God if it is not right then repent today and seek to do the will of God for your life.
It is true someone has offended you; you were betrayed and now you say you will never forgive her. Your decision not to forgive is based on the wrong seed you have sown in your heart. The word of God says that if we are offended in a day ,  we should forgive seven times seventy (Matthew 18:22).   So your decision not to forgive your offender where did you get it from? It is a wrong seed and leads to destruction not from the living seed (word of God).

David was called a man after God's heart because of His good heart posture before God. He had a heart that always sought the face of God. He always wanted to know what God was saying about every situation. God looks at your heart in your service to him, are you serving God because you want to please people? Your heart is not right before God and you will not be rewarded.
Dear reader, quickly do a heart check up, make the necessary adjustment and you will live a healthy life for Glory of God.


Joseph had good and kind heart no wonder he chose to obey God rather than sleep with Potiphar's wife (Genesis 39). His heart for God was a product of his relationship with God. If you want a good and kind heart, you cannot have a  good and kind heart by yourself. You need help. Yes dear, you need the help of God and His help is only accessible when you have a relationship with Him.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ and experience His love for you by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
