#4836 – Guard Your Mouth

Good morning people who don’t let anything unwholesome come out of your mouth.

Proverbs 4:24 NIV Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.

We are always responsible for what comes out of our mouth.

It is also true that, what comes out of our mouth, came from our heart.

The following scripture spoken by Jesus makes this undeniably clear:

Matthew 12:34 NIV You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

If we don’t like what we are saying, we need to ask God to search our heart and see if there is any offensive way in us.

It’s our heart that needs to change, and then our mouth will follow.
