#11 in the series "Wisdom From Heaven For Life On Earth"
Make the heart right and you make the life right. Our world's biggest mistake, shared by many foolish Christians, is the empty effort to build a joyful life from the outside/in, rather than the inside/out. If you aren't happy, look first to the heart. That's where the quality of life is established.
Jesus is identifying the obstetrics of unbelief. It doesn't begin in the intellect, as many people falsely think. It starts with pride. It starts with the desire to be esteemed and loved and praised by those around us. We want to receive glory from other people. And the fastest way to receive glory in this fallen world is to focus on the right fashion, the right group of friends, the right entertainment, etc.
And Jesus said when people care more about the visible part of life more than the part of life God esteems as the most important, they will mess up everything else about their existence. God measures by the heart. Put your emphasis there too.
