What you think, you produce!

It is a common thing to hear people after committing a crime, say something like, “It’s the devil”, “and it’s the work of Satan”

They blame every evil they have committed on the scapegoat – the devil. Someone commits adultery and blames it on the devil, another kills and say it was Satan that caused it!

Hear what the bible has to say about this:

“A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruits will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad” Matthew 12: 33

Jesus went ahead to say, “You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. 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: 34- 35

So whatever you do is as a result of what you have already conceived in your heart. If you are always thinking of evil, an opportunity to do evil will eventually surface and you will do it.

If for instance you think in your mind what it feels like to rape a child, you always try to picture raping someone in your mind, or you are always thinking of what it would like to shoot someone, the opportunity will eventually come someday and you will do it.

When you have satisfied your curiosity you now blame it on the usual scapegoat, the devil, and yet when you conceived those things in your heart you refuse to stop yourself, you refuse to resist the evil, you allow him to take control and you eventually do it, knowing you will always have someone to blame for your acts.

Take responsibility for whatever you do, you are the controller of your thoughts; it’s what you permit to grow in your heart that eventually grows, mature and it's harvested.

We are what we think and what we think eventually becomes us.

Be careful of the thoughts you allow to grow in your mind.
