Hidden in the Apple Blossom

Did you know that if you find an apple with a worm hole, it does not mean that there is a worm inside the apple? It simply means that an insect laid an egg in the apple blossom. Sometime later, the worm hatched in the heart of the apple, then ate its way out.

Despite the appearance, the worm doesn't work its way into the apple, it works its way out. And so it is with sin. Sin doesn't work its way into our hearts, it works its way out. Although sin becomes more obvious later on through our words and actions, it was really there all along, hidden in the very “blossom” of our human nature.

Mark 7:15

There is nothing outside a person that by going into him can defile him, but the things that come out of a person are what defile him.

I love you all,
