In his book Putting Your Past in Its Place, Stephen Viars applies that old adage, “Eat it today, wear it tomorrow” to issues of the heart. The inner feelings or emotions we demonstrate today will have lasting consequences unless we diligently apply God’s Word in our adversity. Dr. Viars cautions that:
-Today’s reactions become tomorrow’s habits.
-Today’s choices become tomorrow’s influences.
-Today’s thoughts become tomorrow’s beliefs.
-Today’s desires become tomorrow’s idols.
-Today’s decisions become tomorrow’s consequences.
Proverbs 4:23- “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”
