Its the heart not the mouth

Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

We like to say that we didn’t mean that harsh comment but the Scriptures say that what happened revealed our heart. This hurts. I know that I often say and do things that I shouldn’t. I think that it just slipped out. It couldn’t slip out if it wasn’t already in there.

So the big lesson is to be working on your heart not your mouth. When you spout off on social media it is just showing who you really are! Wow that was hard but I think that is what we are reading here.

So if my mouth gets me in trouble then what I need to do is work on my heart. What ever is coming out of my mouth is really coming out of my heart.
