    vs 23: What is the heart, but our own imagination. Matt. 12:35, out of the good treasure of the heart we "bring forth" good things. Prov 23:7, as we think in our heart (as we imagine) so are we. We literally create our own life by thinking like God thinks, or we ruin our lives by planting negative in our imagination. Plant what you want to harvest. We reap what we sow.
