So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Do you want to change? Do you want to be a better person? The change has to start inside you first before it can be shared with all the others in your life. Your heart has to be the place where the new life takes root. If we want to be of God and be like God, we must soften our heart to God and allow Him to lead us where we must go. We must soak up His word into our heart so that we might live our lives as He would have us do to exemplify Him to the world.
