From the Abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh!
How many times have we answered without gentleness or just blurted out something and ended up in the middle of a mess!? Unfortunately, I can say many, many times. Today I just wanted to share these scriptures that have encouraged me to place a close watch on my heart and where it is because without the right heart our words cannot be right, which in turn can produce a harsh word and stir up anger and wrong feelings. Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 17:27 He that has knowledge restrains his words,and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. Isaiah 32:6 For the fool speaks folly, his mind is busy with evil: He practices ungodliness and spreads error concerning the Lord; the hungry he leaves empty and from the thirsty he withholds water. Luke 6:45 the good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
