The water reflects our outward appearance, but our outward appearance is only a small part of who we are. Our hearts reveals who we truly are, what we believe, what we value, our morals, our attitude, our desires and our goals.
To know someone, you must examine the person’s heart; to do that you must spend time with him/her. Those whose eyes are ever toward the Lord, are satisfied in him and shall for ever be so.
As we know, silver and gold are tried by putting them into the furnace and fining-pot; so is a man tried by praising him. Some are so bad, that even severe methods do not answer the end; what remains but that they should be rejected?
We have to understand that, the new-creating power of God's grace alone is able to make a change. We ought to have some business to do in this world, and not to live in idleness, and not to meddle with what we do not understand.
We must be diligent and take pains. Let us do what we can, still the world cannot be secured to us, therefore we must choose a more lasting portion; but by the blessing of God upon our honest labors, we may expect to enjoy as much of earthly blessings as is good for us.
In proverbs 21:19;
“As the water reflects the face, so the heart reflects the person”.
