“..what comes out of a person that defiles.” Matthew 7, 14
What sort of desires move me ? What do I long for my creator God , or for the creations of my creator God ? Did I get as far , that the Giver is what I want , or are still the gifts of the Giver that I want ? An important question : what did I put my hand out for today : For what did I tire , work for today ? For what did I give my day away for ?
Your heart is where your treasure is ! What you gather , is what you become ! ! If you searched for beautiful, holy things , then you’ll become beautiful and holy as well ! But if you look for sinful relations , you are lead by selfish desires for possessions , looking for rust eaten junk then quite certainly you’ll be also transformed to the standard, level of your “friend, goals “!!
Measure the desires of your heart to the Infinity,

The Word of God
Then he called the crowd again and said to them, "Listen to me, all of you, and understand: there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile, but the things that come out are what defile." When he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about the parable. He said to them, "Then do you also fail to understand? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile, since it enters, not the heart but the stomach, and goes out into the sewer?" (Thus he declared all foods clean.) And he said, "It is what comes out of a person that defiles. For it is from within, from the human heart, that evil intentions come: fornication, theft, murder, adultery, avarice, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, envy, slander, pride, folly. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person."
