Search and Destroy to Root Out Corruption

The wise saying that you must vigilantly guard what is allowed into your heart is proven true in everyone’s life. It is vital that you know what is it that has free passage through the gateway of your heart, and what are those things that must be denied.

Let’s try to understand the importance of this by considering your heart to be a store-house, a treasury in which the most highly esteemed things are kept. We would like to think that we only store-up things such as, whatever is: true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent, and anything worthy of praise. But our experience reveals that is not the case.

Instead, the entry gates to your treasury are often penetrated by invaders of corruption.  The “sentries” charged with vigilantly guarding entry are either asleep or willing participants in the corruption. So that by their engagement to your desires the corruptible things become a deceitful treasure to you.  This helps explain the truth of Jesus’ words: for wherever your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Unfortunately, these corruptible things are eventually put on display for all to see through your words and actions ‒ and they affect every relationship. The only solution is a “seek and destroy” mission to root out the corruption. David put it this way: Search me, O God, and know my heart; and see if there be any grievous way in me.

Make no mistake, this is an ongoing war for your heart, and you need help to wage the battle.
