Watch Your Mouth

Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.”

What He was saying was that whatever is inside of us seems to find its way to our lips. Usually we are unaware of this.

Someone once said, “When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem tends to look like a nail.”

The things we habitually say tend to indicate what sort of tools we have available inside us for dealing with our life problems and challenges.

Start paying attention to things you repeatedly say.

They may give you a good indicator of the secrets of your heart that even you were unaware of.

And perhaps point you to the work you need to be doing — work that will grow your character and prepare you for new, higher-level challenges.
