Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.” Proverbs 4:23 AMP
If our hearts are not guarded by the power of the Holy Spirit in our humble submission to the Lord, then out of our mouth or tongue will come out filthy things.
O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 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.” Matthew 12:34-35 KJV
Jesus Christ our Lord knew this. Because out of the mouth of a man issues of life are expressed. It maybe good or evil.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. Help me by Your Spirit to guard my Heart so that my mouth will express your praises or virtues in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
