Americans love storage! Here are a few interesting stats about storage units in the U.S. Across our 50 states, there are more than 50,000 storage units. It’s a $38 billion industry, which is about 3 times the amount of box office revenues from Hollywood films! One out of every 11 people in America pays about $100.00 per month to store stuff! Yes, Americans love storage!
There’s another kind of storage that is just as common. In fact, it is something we all have. It’s heart storage.
Jesus talked about the storage capacity of the human heart in Luke 6:45 (NIV) “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
Your heart is a storage unit for good or evil thoughts and things. Daily we deposit these thoughts in our internal container. We place positive thoughts, kindness, forgiveness, and understanding in our hearts, or we unload unresolved hurts, anger, resentment, grudges, lusts, jealousy, and the like, there.
While physical stuff can be stored in a unit for decades without it affecting daily living, heart stuff is different. What’s stored in your heart seeps out into your words and actions. It either sweetens or sours your life.
To change your life, you must clean out all the ugly items stored in your soul. God will help you if you’ll ask Him. He’ll also help you more carefully select what you store there.
Does your heart storage need a fresh clean-out? Get to work on it today!
