“Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23Solomon,a man filled with wisdom is saying for us to energetically, passionately protect our heart. What we speak, the kindnesses or cruelties that come forth are a reflection of the condition of our heart. ” But what comes out of the mouth comes from the heart, and this defiles a man. ” Matthew 15:18. When we ignore the voice of the spirit and live by our own desires, what proceeds from our mouth will not always be uplifting. Often hurtful, only thinking of ourselves, not demonstrating His love to those around us. We speak from the experiences that surround us, from the condition if the world. The thought of how deeply the world influences how and what we say is forgotten. Where as, listening to the spirit and speaking from the spirit lead to kind and gentle words. Expressing His love, that affects both us and the hearer. We are to take great care in speaking, realizing the responsibility or the impact our words have on others. Also knowing we too hear the words that reflect our heart, they can bring us closer to Him or harden us to Him. Guard your heart, an important warning.
