Out of the Abundance of the Heart

"If a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, then I know nothing about Calvary love.
For a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, however suddenly jolted."

-Amy Carmichael, If

"A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh" (Luke 6:45).

That sounds like Pastor's message today; if we have pure hearts before God, that is what will show when we are "bumped up against."

HI Melanie I got my account working again:) I love that quote by Miss Carmichael. In fact, I just got done reading a book on Amy Carmichael to my Sunday School class!

This reminds me of the afternoon message yesterday.

Yes, when Pastor was preaching yesterday, I kept thinking about that quote and how very true it is, and how applicable it was to the message. So I came home and posted it. :-)
Lilly, thanks for commenting!! :-D That's neat that you just finished reading a book on Amy Carmichael to your class-- she has always been one of my favorite missionaries.
