Tales of the heart

"Tales of the heart" Continued...

Issue: "Mid-term, mid-field pileup," Dec. 11, 1999

My theory about fiction revealing the heart needs some revision. God tells us the truth about our hearts, which we must never forget: It is "deceitful above all things" (Jeremiah 17:9). In his resignation letter, President Roche revealed more about his own heart than he probably intended: "We have proved that integrity, values, and courage can still triumph in a corrupt world." But the first place to look for corruption, Jesus taught us, is within.
