It’s the internal attitude of the heart that is essential. (Jesse Deloe, writer, editor)

Did you ever hear someone say, “Don’t do what I do; do what I say”? You knew right away, didn’t you, that the person wasn’t living up to his own standards? What we do is important, of course, because our actions reflect what we really are, what we believe and value. But, it’s the inward attitude of heart—character and integrity—that determine what we do.

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. (Matthew 12:35)
