A Cebuano statement “ka gahi gud nimog kasing-kasing oy” is usually declared to a person who is too hard and strong yet weak to forgive. This statement means you really do have a hard heart.
A hard heart is likely similar to calluses that (kubal in visayan, kalyo in tagalog) toughen our skin’s exterior to numb physical sensation. We build walls around our hearts that prevent us in tune our emotion toward God.
A heart is depicted by soil that is prepared by a farmer for planting a crop and this farmer’s basic preparation is called "tilling" (pagbungkal). Identically our heart needs tilling process that the Word of God may be planted and rooted in the "fertile soil of the heart"
These several kinds of tilling depends on how the soil needs to be prepared for the crop to be planted, same on how our heart is receptive to receive the power of God's Word.
Tilling of soil could be:
*Hand tilling normally done to a slight preparation.
*Double digging is a method of improving the soil in the garden with a spade and needs a lot of hard work.
*Rototilling is for large areas of land, a motorize cultivator with blades that rotate the soil pulverizing it and breaking up clamps into finer mixture.
*Plowing and Harrowing (utilize by Philippines Farmer) are using araro and then harrow (suyud) to overturn the soil and bury grasses and weeds and to initially pulverize the soil (see video posts).
What is the condition of your heart right now, does this needs tilling? What kind of tilling is essential to you? A hand tilling? Or double digging that needs a lot of hard work? Or rototilling that needs motorize cultivator to breaking up the clamps of your hard heart into finer mixture? And or by using plow (araro) then harrow (suyud) to overturn hindrances that resulting to callused heart?
Tilling is painful. God intends to use difficult circumstances in our life to break up, to pulverize, to overturn the soil and bury the grasses and weeds of the fallow ground of our heart in order to restore its fertility. The most powerful tool in tilling the soil of our heart is the Scripture as the Bible says "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness," 2 Timothy 3:16. Allow the Bible to transform your heart into fertile soil that bears ever lasts fruit.
God will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; He will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26
Allow God to transform you right now that the world might better say “aduna gyod kay malumo nga kasing kasing” meaning you really do have a tender heart.
