Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth leaks.
No, that was not a spelling error, I meant to say that!! The words that come out of our mouth are those that we’ve been thinking and meditating on for a while! That is why it is so vital that we fill our minds with good things!
~ Philippians 4:8
I’ve used this illustration at the church before, and I’ll share it with you now: If you take a sponge and place it into a bucket of lemonade, the only thing that you will be able to squeeze out of it, will be lemonade!! Likewise if we fill our minds with Gods word, Gods word is what is going to come out of us!!
On the flip side, you can’t fill your mind with garbage and expect good things to come out of your mouth!
It’s a spiritual law that is just as real and consequential as the law of gravity! So the first step to guarding your mouth then is…? That’s right!!! Guard your heart and mind!!!
Be encouraged this week!! We are praying for you!
Jesus is Lord!
