18 Commands Concerning the Heart

18 Commands Concerning the Heart  18 Commands Concerning the Heart
Proverbs 23

We all know that we are to have a good heart, a loving heart. We are to show God’s love, the love that He has, He gives us and we are to show His love to everyone and practice it with those around us.

But, we have to have a loving heart before we can show God’s love. We have to renew it, like we renew our minds by reading God’s word. I see all the time especially on “Facebook” how people say they hate this person, they hate that person…what they are not realizing is; when they say “I hate a person” they are committing murder in their hearts. How can we show Jesus’ Love / God’s Love if we are hating someone??

No person can have “Jesus in their hearts” if they are hating someone. Hating leads to “Hell and fire and brimstone” you CANNOT LOVE GOD, if you are hating someone.”

I have listed 18 Commands Concerning the Heart, and there are scriptures which you can look up as well.
