A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. Proverbs 18:7 KJV
It might be good for you to listen to what you’re saying. The Bible, God’s Word, says that what comes out of your mouth issues from what is stored in your heart.
I’ll never forget the time when the Lord spoke to me and said, ” Listen to yourself. Do you really want what you’re saying? What you say is what is really in your heart.”
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. Matthew 15:18 KJV
Our words establish our environment and determine our future. They hold creative power for evil or for good. That’s why it is so important to guard your heart and listen to what comes out of it.
A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:35-37 KJV.
The cure for a polluted heart is the Word of God.
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalms 119:11 KJV
And that, Beloved, is my thought for today.
